For various reasons, certain types of drugs are illegal, while other types of drugs are legal, and some types of drugs are only legal under certain circumstances. For example, if a person is caught in Georgia with legal prescription drugs without a proper prescription, he or she can find him or herself being arrested by law enforcement. This can result in a person having to face drug charges that can carry serious consequences.
One man is facing exactly this type of situation after he was recently arrested. The incident occurred one evening in early March. The 60-year-old man was found with three types of prescription drugs, according to reports released to the public by authorities. The man reportedly possessed diazepam, oxycodone and alprazolam.

The man is now facing one count of Schedule II drug possession. He will also be facing two counts of Schedule IV drug possession, as well as one count of not keeping pharmaceuticals in the original containers. The man was discovered by police at approximately 6:20 p.m. according to the latest reports.
Fortunately, the man will also have a chance to defend himself against the drug charges in a court of law in Georgia. However, this can prove to be a challenging task if the defendant does not properly prepare before the trial begins. Therefore, it is essential for any defendant in a criminal trial to fully understand the laws that are relevant to his or her specific case. This will help with the formulation and execution of a strong legal defense strategy.
