Georgia Takes Drug Charges Seriously
When charged with a drug crime in Georgia, be prepared to face the potential for serious penalties. Georgia puts controlled substances into various categories, called “schedules,” based on the danger and severity of the drugs.
- Schedule I: This is considered the most dangerous category and includes LSD, mushrooms and heroin. Marijuana is also included as a Schedule I drug, but simple possession of less than an ounce is punished less severely than the others in this schedule, and it is classified as a misdemeanor.
- Schedule II: This category is one step below Schedule I in severity and includes cocaine, meth and prescription drugs.
- Schedule III: This category includes steroids.
- Schedule IV: This includes only prescription drugs that have potential for abuse.
As you can see, even marijuana possession, when possessed in sufficient quantity, can be considered a serious criminal violation. Sale or possession of drugs in even the lowest of these categories can result in significant jail time and fines.
