Most people who habitually use an illegal substance have rituals or habits that surround their drug use. They may have a particular smoking apparatus that they prefer to use or they might even carry their own syringes. Unfortunately, Georgia law doesn't have much leniency for those addicted to illegal substances.
Georgia residents may consider shoplifting to be a petty crime, often associated with a child sneaking a candy item in the checkout line or other scenario in which a simple lesson can be learned. Sadly, many adults make the decision to take things without paying for them, and in many cases, being caught shoplifting can turn into a serious situation for the person accused. Recently, a group of adults was accused of just this thing, and now each individual involved must face the music.
Yet another member of the hip hop community has been arrested in Georgia. The state often plays host to world-famous acts, and it is certainly not unusual for big-name rappers to be passing through. Recently, an artist by the stage name Boosie was the latest in what seems to be a string of arrests involving hip hop artists in the Peach State. He must now decide the best approach for a solid criminal defense.
More than half of adults in the U.S. do not have an estate plan, and those who consider making one understandably want it to be as simple as possible.

Many Georgia patients will be overjoyed to learn that, at long last, the state has passed new laws outlining the provisions for production and sale of medical marijuana. For some time, Georgia residents suffering from qualifying conditions could obtain a medical marijuana card. Shockingly, these patients remained unable to legally obtain the medicine, leaving them at risk to be charged with marijuana possession.
