The majority of drug possession charges are prosecuted at the state or local level. Sometimes, however, federal drug possession charges will result from an investigation by a federal agency such as the FBI, ATF or DEA. In this instance, the charges are usually filed along with others, such as trafficking or unlawful manufacturing of illegal drugs.
Similar to Georgia drug charges, federal drug charges carry different penalties, depending on the type and amount of the illegal drug found in your possession. In addition, a federal drug conviction can result in the loss of federal benefits, such as student loans or public housing.
