2 Georgia football players arrested and charged with drug crimes

Two University of Georgia football players, were arrested by the Barrow County Sheriff's Department last Saturday evening. Officers arrested one of the players on suspicion that he was speeding and driving under the influence of narcotics. Officers further claimed that they found marijuana on the passenger seat and passenger side of the vehicle, where the other player was seated -- which is why they arrested him.

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.
