Drug Possession Archives

Nearly 70 arrested for marijuana possession

Georgia residents may have heard about the recent arrests made at a house party early on the morning of New Year's Eve. There were nearly 70 individuals arrested at this party with ages ranging from 15 to 31 years old. Because officers found a small amount of marijuana on the property, all of the defendants have been charged with marijuana possession. A few have also been charged with various other drug crimes.

Football players arrested for marijuana possession

Football is a major part of many people's weekend in Georgia. Residents often get highly invested in both college and professional teams, and often, in the careers of specific players. Some fans become so invested that even the possibility that a player may miss an important game is distressing. This is the case for two college football players recently arrested on marijuana possession charges as well as traffic violations.

Suspicion of drug crimes doesn't mean police can abandon protocol

When Georgia law enforcement officials conduct investigations, they are required to follow certain protocols and procedures to ensure that they do not violate the rights of those people suspected of wrongdoing. The adage that police are there to "protect and serve" extends to those accused of crimes, not just those believed to be victims or innocent. For instance, when police conduct searches regarding suspected drug crimes, they cannot violate the right against an unreasonable search and seizure.

Several staying in a motel ended up arrested for drug possession

Was it a case of wrong place, wrong time? Only time will tell. Some Georgia motels seem to have an inordinate number of illicit activities going on in them, but that does not mean that every occupant partakes in them. Motels are public places, and previous occupants could leave behind any number of items. Depending on the circumstances, it is possible that unwitting guests could end up facing charges for drug possession or other crimes.

2 men in Georgia accused of drug crimes following traffic stop

For some people, a traffic stop in Georgia is a relatively routine procedure. They are pulled over, and depending on the reason for the stop, they receive a citation and continue with their day. However, a recent stop turned into something more, and now two men face accusations of drug crimes.

Mom accused of drug crimes in Georgia after police chase

For some people, an encounter with a police officer is anxiety-producing. Even seeing a police officer parked on the side of the road can prompt some drivers to respond in unexpected ways.  Unfortunately, police say that a mother in Georgia recently started a police pursuit after she fled when an officer attempted to pull her over. She is now suspected of drug crimes, among other accusations.

Several face charges for drug crimes after traffic stop

Georgia law enforcement officials often rely on traffic stops to discover illegal activity. Charges for drug crimes, impairment and other criminal activity often result from what starts out as a seemingly innocent stop. Under any circumstances, any individuals placed under arrest on the side of the road still have the right to contest any charges they face, particularly since the procedures used in some traffic stops do not comply with current laws.

Do you have a good defense to the drug crimes you face?

Georgia law takes the possession, sale and manufacturing of drugs seriously. Prosecutors often use everything in their arsenals to either secure a conviction or convince you to plead guilty to some crime associated with your arrest. However, just because you were charged with drug crimes doesn't mean that you should take a deal or be convicted.

Prison visitors end up under arrest for marijuana possession

Many Georgia residents have friends and loved ones who made mistakes for which they are paying by being incarcerated here in the state. Visiting them in prison may be part of their routines, so they become lax in ensuring that they meet all of the prison requirements for visitation. This may not result in arrests for most people, but for three people it recently resulted in arrests for alleged marijuana possession, among other charges.
