The term, drug charge, is usually one that makes a person think of hard drugs and harsh penalties. Thus, when a person is convicted of a crime related to marijuana, many in Georgia view this as a less serious charge. Nonetheless, crimes related to marijuana cultivation, sales and trafficking are serious. Therefore, those facing such crimes should understand that they have defense options available to them.
Although many argue that marijuana is a harmless drug, most states across the nation maintain stiff penalties for those caught using or selling marijuana. This is true, despite the fact that some states have passed laws allowing for medicinal or personal use. Being caught with even a small amount of marijuana could mean serious drug charges and even a felony charge if a defendant is found to have an ounce or more in their possession.
