Marijuana Possession Defense Lawyer
In the state of Georgia, it is a crime to possess marijuana for personal use or to buy, manufacture or sell it. Georgia law considers the possession of an ounce or less of marijuana to be a misdemeanor. However, it is important to realize that there are circumstances in which possession of less than an ounce can result in a felony charge. This is typically when the offender is found to have intent to distribute, either for sale or for sharing. The ramifications of marijuana possession and intent to distribute are significant, as it can include possible prison time, fines and other penalties.
