Have you been arrested for possessing illegal drugs? According to Official Code of Georgia Annotated § 16-13-30, possession of any controlled substance is a serious crime. Even if you are found in possession of a small amount of marijuana, you could still face felony charges. O.C.G.A. § 16-13-30 states that possession of a controlled substance in an amount less than 28 grams is punishable by imprisonment for 1 - 15 years.
You can only be convicted of possession if it can be proven that you were aware of the drugs existence and that it was on your person or within your direct control. That is why you need an Atlanta drug crime defense attorney to defend you.
