Fighting Drug Charges in Georgia 

Georgia divides different drugs into five categories called "schedules" that indicate each drug's level of danger and potential for abuse. Drug crime charges and penalties increase or decrease depending on the schedule of drug involved.

What Are the Penalties for Drug Possession in Georgia?

Possession of a Schedule I or Schedule II drug is punishable by 2-15 years in prison. A repeat offense of possessing a Schedule I or narcotic Schedule II drug is up to 30 years in prison, while a repeat offense of other types of Schedule II drugs is punishable by a minimum of 5 years in prison and a maximum of 30.

Possession of Schedule III, IV, or V drugs are punishable by 1-5 years in prison and repeat offenses are punishable by 1-10 years.

A conviction for any drug possession crime will result in a driver's license suspension for at least six months (for a first offense). A second offense results in a 1-year suspension and a third or subsequent offense is punishable by a 2-year suspension.
