Drug Charge Lawyer

Drug charges which cover both possession and the sale of drugs, carry some of the most severe penalties and fines of any crime in Georgia.

Anything that can be used to make, ingest or conceal drugs is considered drug paraphernalia.

Possession of drug paraphernalia is an additional misdemeanor charge commonly combined with felony drug possession charges.
