Man charged with drug crimes following traffic stop

Around the country, marijuana is becoming less taboo for people to possess and use. However, Georgia citizens can still be charged with drug crimes depending on the amount of marijuana and the claimed intentions for using the drug. An individual could be in the wrong place at the wrong time and suddenly face criminal allegations due to simply being a passenger in a vehicle or borrowing a car. Marijuana may even be found in a driver's vehicle after being stopped for a minor traffic violation that is not related to drugs at all.

A man is currently in that exact situation as he faces felony charges related to marijuana after police made a routine traffic stop. Around 9:30 p.m., the police allegedly stopped the man for a broken tag light. As the stop was being conducted, allegations to much more serious charges were lodged against the man, and he was arrested.

According to police, the accused is facing felony charges of possession, purchase, distribution and manufacturing marijuana, along with the tag-light violation. Upon further investigation, it was later concluded that the man was wanted on an outstanding warrant for another unrelated incident that occurred some months prior. He is being held in jail on a bond of $10,100.

Facing criminal charges for drug crimes can be a harrowing experience for any Georgia resident. Marijuana convictions are becoming a battle worth fighting due to the legally ambiguous posture of the drug across the country. Obtaining experienced counsel could ensure that a strong defense is built on behalf of the defendant and presented in court.
