About Drug Crime Charges in Georgia

Drug Crime Defense Attorney
Georgia has some of the top state and federal narcotics task forces in the country. There are multiple “sting” operations and investigations going on at all times, and individuals who are caught in the net of law enforcement on drug charges are facing a serious legal situation. 

Worse still, penalties for drug possession can be severe. Even in the case of a simple possession of a small amount of marijuana, penalties include potential jail time and loss of drivers license for a first offense.

Penalties for possession of any amount of controlled substances such as heroin, cocaine, LSD, ecstasy, or methamphetamine to name a few are even tougher. Even possession of a small amount of one of these substances will be prosecuted as a felony offense. If you are found to possess one of these drugs, you can be certain that the state will attempt to vigorously prosecute you.
