Athens Prescription Drug Crime Attorney

In Georgia, drugs are divided into five classes – also called "schedules" – according to their intended uses and likelihood for abuse. Drugs with the highest potential for abuse and no accepted medical use are in Schedule I. Drugs with the lowest potential for abuse, drugs that have accepted medical uses, and drugs that have limited risk for physical or psychological dependence are Schedule V drugs. Schedules II, III and IV include drugs that fall between those ends of the spectrum.

If you are facing prescription drug charges, the potential penalties are determined by the amount of drugs found, whether you have a prescription, which schedule the drugs fall into and other factors.

Even when all those factors have been considered, the penalties for prescription drug charges can run the gamut. If you were arrested on suspicion of possession, sale, distribution or trafficking of prescription drugs, you need an experienced lawyer who can protect your rights.
