Drug Distribution Charges

In Atlanta, you could be charged with drug distribution charges if you are caught with an amount of narcotics that exceeds a reasonable amount for personal consumption. Each controlled substance has a different measurement for what is considered reasonable for personal use. Depending on how much you are caught with and where you are caught, you could also face possible drug trafficking charges as well.

Penalties for Drug Distribution

Georgia takes drug crimes very seriously. Distribution of a controlled substance can be charged at both the state and the federal levels. The penalties for such crimes are heavily determined by which controlled substance was found, location, and past criminal history. First-time offenders could face anywhere between 5 to 30 years in prison and second-time offenders could be forced to serve sentences anywhere between 10 and 40 years. If the individual was caught with a schedule I or II drug, they could be slapped with a life sentence.
