Possession of Marijuana Can Suspend Your Driver’s License!
While many states are moving to decriminalize possession of marijuana, Georgia is not one of them. You can be charged with possession of marijuana even if it is a small amount. If you are charged with possession of marijuana less than 1 ounce, it will be a misdemeanor. If the charge is for more than an ounce, it will be a felony.
Even if you are charged with only a misdemeanor you could face a maximum of 12 months in jail and a $1000 fine. In addition, your driver’s license will be suspended.
There are a number of ways to prevent a license suspension for possession of marijuana, which may be available even if you have prior convictions. However, it is important to have an experienced attorney to handle the case, because they can become complicated.
