We Defend Students And Others Against Prescription And Designer Drug Crimes
The black market for prescription and designer drugs grows every day. Students use them for everything from enhancing concentration and being able to stay up to study to getting high. Designer or synthetic drugs are being outlawed by Georgia legislators as fast as their components are being changed to keep them legal.
The police are cracking down on recreational drug abuse. If you are caught with these drugs, you risk arrest. As a student, this puts your entire future at stake. To protect your rights, look to an experienced lawyer who knows the local laws and legal community.
Tracy Teiger of Teiger Law Center, P.C., has practiced law for nearly 30 years and knows the impact an arrest or conviction can have on a person’s life. He and his team dedicate themselves to defending the rights of students who have made a mistake that may cause irreparable harm.
Dangerous Drugs And Their Consequences
While the list of popular drugs changes regularly, some of the most commonly abused and available drugs include:
- Methamphetamine (Meth)
- Bath salts
- Synthetic marijuana
- Scopolamine and other “zombie” drugs
If you are caught with these drugs in your possession, the penalties can be harsh. If it is your first offense, you may only be fined and subject to jail time. If you are accused of intent to distribute or prescription fraud, those are felony charges, which can be much worse.
If you have any conviction on your record, you are required by law to admit it when applying for a job, looking for a place to live or applying for a loan. A felony conviction is a permanent black mark that will affect every aspect of your life. As a student, you are also at risk of losing any financial aid and scholarships you may have and being kicked out of school. You can ill afford to allow your future to be ruined.
Attorney Teiger and his team will fight to keep any conviction off your record. If possible, we will try to get the charges dropped. Other options include pretrial diversion programs that allow for lesser penalties if you go through rehabilitation. We want you to have a bright future.
