The Serious Consequences of a Drug Possession Conviction

In Georgia, the severity of the penalties associated with a drug possession conviction depend in large part on the category involved.

Drugs are legally categorized by “schedule,” as follows:

  • Schedule I—These carry the greatest likelihood of being abused and have no official medical application. Schedule I substances currently include heroin, marijuana, and LSD.
  • Schedule II—These have a high likelihood of being abused or causing the user to become dependent but do have some accepted but strictly limited medical uses. Schedule II substances include methamphetamines, Adderall, some opioids such as Fentanyl, and others.
  • Schedule III—These are less likely to be abused, carry less potential for dependence, and do have acceptable medical applications. Schedule III drugs currently include anabolic steroids, small doses of codeine, and others.
  • Schedule IV—These have a low chance of being abused and only a relatively small chance of the user becoming dependent. Schedule IV drugs currently include some sleeping pills, anxiety medications, antidepressants, and others.
  • Schedule V—These carry the lowest likelihood of being abused or depended upon and have acceptable medical applications. Schedule V drugs include some cough medicines and similar medications that contain less than 200mg of codeine per 100mL.

Depending on the nature of the drugs you are accused of having in your possession, you could face time in prison, which could vary in length as follows:

  • Up to 30 years in prison (if convicted of having a Schedule I or Schedule II substance in your possession more than once)
  • Up to 15 years in prison (if convicted of having a Schedule I or Schedule II substance in your possession more than once)
  • Up to 10 years in prison (if convicted of having a Schedule III, IV, or V drug in your possession)
  • Up to 5 years in prison (if convicted of having a Schedule III, IV, or V drug in your possession)
