The Scope Of Georgia Drug Offenses

Georgia’s Controlled Substances Act applies not only to illicit drugs, such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and LSD, but also to other controlled substances, including prescription drugs. Various factors help determine the charges that may be brought upon an individual for possession or other crimes, as well as their associated penalties. These factors can depend upon the type of drugs involved, the amount of drugs, and additional situations. Generally speaking, the following constitute the main categories of drug crimes:

  • Possession of drugs.
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia.
  • Possession with intent to sell or distribute.
  • Drug trafficking.
  • Drug manufacture.

Drug charges can range from relatively minor, from simple possession to serious state and federal felonies. The sentences for these crimes can also vary, from many years of incarceration to costly fines and other penalties. In addition, penalties can compound when multiple charges are sought.

If you are facing charges for violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act, you need experienced and competent legal assistance to help you understand the charges you are facing, help you evaluate your options, and defend you.

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
