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.
