Despite changes to the drug laws in other parts of the country, it is still illegal to possess or distribute controlled substances in Georgia. This includes cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, and marijuana. It is also illegal to possess commonly prescribed pills that contain controlled substances, such as Lortab, Vicodin and Oxycodone, without a valid prescription and in their original containers.
In addition to facing lengthy probation, steep fines, and possibly months or years in confinement, even a conviction for a small amount of marijuana can have long term effects, such as losing your job or a suspension of your driver’s license. The laws surrounding traffic stops and search and seizure are complex and constantly changing. An experienced criminal defense attorney can evaluate your case and determine if it may be possible to have evidence against you suppressed (thrown out) by the court prior to a trial, sometimes causing the charges to be dismissed by the State.
