State Drug Crimes
In Georgia and throughout the United States, law enforcement officers and prosecutors continue to pursue the “War on Drugs” within the country, at sea and across international borders. The government devotes enormous amounts of resources to arresting and convicting those suspected of drug crimes. As a part of this effort, Georgia law imposes some of the harshest sentences in the nation on those who are convicted of drug charges.
Even seemingly minor offenses, such as paraphernalia possession, can lead to jail time, fines and a criminal record that will follow you forever and permanently tarnish your reputation.
At Conaway & Strickler, P.C., our skilled and seasoned Atlanta-based drug crime defense attorneys serve the needs of those accused of drug crimes throughout Georgia, and our attorneys can bring nearly 50 years of combined experience to your case. We are familiar with local courts across the state, allowing us to serve as effective advocates in any forum.
We Defend People Throughout Georgia Against Serious Drug Charges
Under the Georgia Controlled Substance Act (GCSA), a variety of activities involving controlled substances are outlawed. Growing, possessing, selling and other drug-related activities can lead to charges such as:
- Drug trafficking
- Drug sale or distribution
- Drug possession with intent to sell or distribute
- Drug possession
- Possession of marijuana
- Prescription drug charges
- Drug manufacturing or cultivation
- Driving under the influence of drugs (DUI)
In many cases, drug charges accompany other criminal charges, such as DUI, weapons offenses, theft, sex crimes or violent crimes.
