Drug Possession Archives

Woman charged with drug crimes after unrelated incident

By now, Georgia residents are well aware that the nation as a whole is in the midst of what many experts describe as an "addiction epidemic." Addiction to drugs is now considered by many medical professionals to be a disease, and some warn that many addicts will only suffer more if they are only prosecuted criminally and not given an opportunity for medical rehabilitation. Certainly, some people charged with drug crimes may have been involved in other serious criminal activity, but statistics show that a large portion of addicts are just regular people, struggling to live with their addiction.

Faulty drug test could lead to invalid charges of drug crimes

Both state and federal laws take a strong stance against the use and possession of illicit drugs, and Georgia readers know individuals convicted of this type of crime can face extensive time in jail. Charges related to drug crimes are serious, and they can affect a person's freedom and his or her future interests. Unfortunately, there may be some across the state who are facing these charges for a specific invalid reason -- a faulty drug test.

Georgia man facing marijuana possession, trafficking charges

Many Georgia residents can relate to situations where days that start out one way wind up quite another. One man recently gained a clear understanding of what that is like when he was traveling somewhere and a police officer pulled him over in a traffic stop. The events that unfolded thereafter may change his life because he is now facing marijuana possession and trafficking charges.

Heroin epidemic leads to increased drug crimes arrests

Many Georgia residents are likely aware that the nation is in the grips of an opioid epidemic. With ever-increasing numbers of overdose deaths and lives ruined by addiction, law enforcement is cracking down on drug crimes. While these efforts are meant to save lives, some feel as if the paranoia leads to trumped-up charges and faulty investigations that may lead to wrongful arrests or criminal sentences.

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.

The alleged sale of pot brownies results in drug crimes charges

Georgia authorities recently arrested a man for allegedly selling drug-laced brownies outside of a Walmart. The individual charged with these drug crimes was a 19-year-old aspiring entrepreneur at the time of his arrest. Many of his friends have banded together and begun raising money through an online fundraising campaign in an effort to raise money for his defense. 

Possible changes to drug possession laws

To many across the nation, it may seem like more and more people are being arrested for drug-related crimes. Drug possession charges regarding small amounts of marijuana have become particularly common. There are many people who believe that the punishment for these crimes is too extreme. In fact, some counties in Georgia are considering greatly reducing these punishments.

3 arrested for drug crimes in Georgia

Georgia police recently arrested three individuals after they seized large quantities of drugs from a truck. All three defendants have each been charged with marijuana trafficking. Only two of the defendants were charged with additional drug crimes. They were also charged with cocaine trafficking and possessing illegal firearms, as well as other drug-related charges. 

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.
