There are several ways that someone can be charged with drugs in Georgia.
Due to the numerous types of drug charges, the help of an experienced drug possession lawyer is needed to assure that you receive the help you deserve.
The State of Georgia lists out what you can be charged with under Drug charges through statutes. Those statutes list out, in small part:
- Possession of Drugs
- Possession of Drug related objects
- Felony possession
- Misdemeanor possession
- Purchasing, manufacturing, distribution or sale of drugs (controlled substances).
Each of these charges can be attributed to any drugs listed under the five schedules of the statute O.C.G.A.16-13-25 through O.C.G.A. 16-13-29. They include, but are not limited to:
- LSD (also known as acid or Lysergic Acid Diethylamide)
- Ecstasy (also known as MDMA or methylenedioxymethamphetamine)
- Dilaudid (hydromorphone) and other prescription medications (for which the client usually didn’t have a prescription).
Some of the different types of charges receive special sections (special statutes). These statutes include O.C.G.A.16-13-2(b) and O.C.G.A.16-13-30 for example.
The first of these 16-13-2B is more commonly referred to a Possession of Marijuana Less than an ounce. This is the state statute that covers Possession of Marijuana.
The latter of these statutes, 16-13-30, is how the state charges someone for Possession of marijuana more than an ounce, purchasing, manufacturing, distribution or sale and Trafficking in Marijuana.
The different types of charges, drugs and schedules carry different types of sentencing possibilities.
It is especially important with drug crimes to seek the help of an experienced Drug Possession Attorney.
