What Are the Penalties for Drug Possession in Georgia?

The penalties that can be imposed for possession vary based upon the type of drug. Schedule I and Schedule II drugs are considered the most dangerous. These drugs include LSD, opium, heroin, cocaine, meth, and other amphetamines, THC, angel dust, ecstasy, and GHB more. Possessing one of these substances can lead to a prison sentence of 5–30 years on a first offense, and up to life imprisonment for those with a prior conviction. Schedule III, IV, and V drugs include steroids, codeine, hydrocodone, Xanax, and many other prescription medications.

Possessing one ounce or less of marijuana is a misdemeanor crime. Possessing over 50 pounds of marijuana carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years as well as a mandatory fine of at least $100,000, and up to $1,000,000.

Possession with Intent to Sell

You could be charged with possession with intent – a felony – if you have more than a certain amount of a particular drug, or if there is evidence that there was a trafficking operation (such as scales, wrapping materials, large amounts of cash or other similar evidence). A first offense can lead to up to 5 years in prison and a second offense can be penalized by up to 10 years in prison.

Grow Houses, Meth Manufacturing & Prescription Drug Trafficking in Georgia

There has been a great deal of attention by law enforcement regarding finding those who are involved in marijuana cultivation or the manufacturing of meth. State and federal police agencies work in a coordinated effort to identify any person involved in these illegal activities. The penalties imposed in a conviction will be life-changing, including many years in state prison on a first offense. There has also been a massive crackdown on illegal prescription drug offenses and all associated crimes such as prescription fraud and doctor shopping.
