Penalties for a Conviction
Depending on the specific drug crime and whether any issues were present that would enhance sentencing, a defendant in Georgia may face imprisonment in state prison or county jail, fines, community service, probation, and/or drug rehabilitation or treatment. Most drug crimes are charged as felonies in Georgia, meaning a defendant may face incarceration in state prison. A first drug possession offense for marijuana or a different drug that is not considered highly dangerous, however, may be charged as a misdemeanor with the defendant eligible for alternative sentencing to avoid imprisonment.
