Student says alleged theft is a cheesy accusation

Breakfast has long been touted as the most important meal of the day. Recently, a Georgia student popped into a local Waffle House restaurant to grab a bite and nearly wound up in legal trouble. What began as a question over a bill quickly escalated into an accusation of theft

Understanding marijuana possession laws in Georgia

Georgia drug laws tend to be relatively strict when compared to other states in the country. However, slow and steady headway is being made when it comes to the use of marijuana. House Bill 1, informally known as Haleigh's Hope Act, now allows certain patients to legally attain low THC cannabis oil as a medical prescription.

29 arrested for drug possession in Georgia

Nearly 30 people have been arrested by the Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit Drug Task Force across a variety of counties, according to recent reports. This drug possession bust was among the largest in the state, engaging nine different law enforcement organizations including county and local police forces as well as U.S. Marshals. Those arrested will be appearing in Georgia criminal court to face their charges. 

Does your town depend on income from traffic violations?

Georgia residents may be surprised to learn that the Peach State was recently mentioned in an interesting article in Forbes Magazine.

Proof of marijuana possession faces challenge

Laws governing marijuana possession are changing in much of the nation. The state of Georgia recently passed a law called the Georgia Hemp Farming Act.  The law legalized the growing of hemp in Georgia. The hemp plant is virtually indistinguishable from the marijuana plant, but hemp contains far less THC, the ingredient that causes a high, than marijuana does. The law has created some confusion among law enforcement officials regarding marijuana possession.
