Busted for Pot in Sugar Hill, GA?

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jul 05, 2011 | 0 Comments

With explosive growth in the Sugar Hill area of Gwinnett County in recent years comes growth in the amount of crime and in the amount of law enforcement.  Gwinnett County officers make lots of arrests in and around the Sugar Hill area for drug related crimes.  Simple  possession of marijuana is one of the most common.  For being in possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, or for have marijuana related objects (likes pipes), you will be charged with a misdemeanor.  It still counts as possession even if there are only trace like amounts or residue.  Other drugs, such as strong prescription narcotics, heroin, cocaine, meth, speed, etc. are only charged as felonies in Sugar Hill and in the greater state of Georgia.  Once again, even the residue of these substances, even if not a usable amount, will result in a felony possession charge.  The distribution of any substances, including marijuana, will lead to a felony charge as well.  In addition, drug / marijuana crimes in Sugar Hill, like driving under the influence of marijuana or a prescription pain medication seem to be on the rise. 

If you find yourself charged with a marijuana or drug / DUI offense in the Sugar Hill area, call Gwinnett marijuana possession lawyer Richard Lawson and his associate lawyers for a free legal consultation.
