Georgia Drug Possession Laws

Georgia drug possession laws can be confusing, especially for someone who has never dealt with criminal law before. There are several levels of drug possession that carry different penalties. Depending on the type and amount of drug, the penalties can be anywhere from a misdemeanor to a felony. Ultimately, the type of drug and the amount you are caught with will determine the penalties you face. For example, a first offense of marijuana possession of 1 ounce or less is a misdemeanor and can result in up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. However, if you are caught with a Schedule I Controlled Substance, Schedule II narcotic, or Schedule II non-narcotic, you will be facing a felony punishable by up to 30 years, depending on the quantity of the drug found on you.

Types of Drugs Charges We Can Help With

Georgia drug possession laws include a wide range of illegal drugs. Some examples include:

  • Marijuana: Marijuana possession is a misdemeanor in Georgia for a first offense of 1 ounce or less. You can be charged with marijuana possession even if you only have a small amount.
  • Heroin: Heroin possession is a felony. It is punishable by a jail sentence of 2 to 15 years for a first offense.
  • Cocaine: Cocaine possession is also a felony. It is punishable by jail time of 2 to 15 years for a first offense.
