When will marijuana benefit from federal legalization?

If Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer has his way, the federal government could be on track to legalize marijuana. Schumer introduced a proposed piece of legislation to the Senate last month.

Were you accused of cocaine-related crimes?

The trafficking, possession and sale of cocaine is a crime in Georgia and the rest of the United States. Cocaine is perceived as one of the most illicit and dangerous drugs on the market, and punishment associated with cocaine-related crimes are more severe than other drugs. In the state of Georgia, the laws that govern cocaine possession, production and distribution are particularly strict.

How does Georgia law determine drug categories?

The categorization of drugs might seem arbitrary and subject to different opinions. This point is illuminated by the fact that marijuana is a Schedule I drug on par with heroin in our state -- whereas it's legal for recreational and medical use in other states. There is clearly a difference of opinion here.
