Is Possession Of A Controlled Substance A Felony In Georgia?

Georgia drug possession laws are treated very seriously and a conviction for possession of even a small amount of an illegal drug can subject you to serious penalties. There are numerous types of drugs in Georgia, and they are broken into classifications called Schedules.

Depending on what schedule your drug belongs to can have a major impact on the penalties you will face.

How Long Do You Go to Jail for Drug Possession in Georgia?

The penalties for drug possession in Georgia are as follows:

  • Possession of Schedule I or II narcotic drugs carries a jail sentence of 2-15 years.
  • If the defendant committed that crime with prior history, a sentence carries up to 30 years in prison.

No matter what Schedule the drug falls under, apart from marijuana, the Georgia laws charge possession as a felony. Do not underestimate the severity of these charges.

    Mr. Mike Moran and his son Will are the best lawyers and I’ve had a different lawyer before but none never made me feel secured like I did with the Moran’s. They’re honest, straight to the point meaning they don’t sugar coat anything they was more than patient with me and my personal issues and still worked harder than I did for my own self. He also was the one person who talked to me on a fatherly figure level something my own family doesn’t do. Id sag if you want a lawyer who cares, who’s competitive, who trusts in his clients as much as they trust in him and a team who knows what there doing Mike Moran and his team is the best team to have on your side! It’s also amazing to find a firm who isn’t fazed by fake promo and top lawyer ads instead their hard work and dedication does the real promo for them! They also respond as soon as they can there patient please pay them when owed there not a money hungry form but they still need there money and it’s not places you can find to work with you nowadays especially since it’s a hard time for everyone in some way sort or form. God bless thank you again again and AGAIN for getting my case dismissed(Mille prodded and restricted) I went from one court saying they can only leave it in a dead docket to transferring it to state court getting a better offer the best offer possible (nolle prose/dismissed) thanks to Mr Mike Moran and Will and the whole Moran firm!
