Some drug crimes are minor and are charged as misdemeanors, such as the possession of small amounts of marijuana. Drug crimes involving more serious controlled substances, such as cocaine or methamphetamine, are charged and tried as felonies. Drug crimes in Georgia carry severe penalties. In many cases, prison sentences for drug crimes under Georgia law are longer than those imposed under federal law.
Serious drug crimes under Georgia law can result in prison sentences of up to 30 years. Under Georgia law, mandatory minimum sentences apply for quantities of cocaine or methamphetamine as small as 28 grams. If you are facing charges of any drug crime involving cocaine or methamphetamine, the penalties could be severe. Make sure that you have the defense of a skilled Atlanta Drug Defense Attorney.
