Drug Schedules

In Georgia, the consequences and fines associated with a drug offense vary according to the specific drug involved. Controlled substances in Georgia are classified into five schedules, each reflecting the degree of abuse potential. 

Drug schedules include:

  • Schedule I drugs: Schedule I drugs include substances that have a high potential for abuse and do not have an accepted medical usage. Examples include LSD, heroin, and ecstasy.
  • Schedule II drugs: These types of substances have a high potential for abuse but have some accepted medical use. Examples include amphetamine and cocaine.
  • Schedule III drugs: Schedule III drugs have less potential for abuse than drugs in Schedules I and II. Schedule III drugs also have an accepted medical usage. Examples include depressants, anabolic steroids, and stimulants.
  • Schedule IV drugs: These drugs have a lower potential for abuse than Schedule III drugs and have accepted medical use. Examples include certain depressants and stimulants.
  • Schedule V drugs: These substances have the lowest potential for abuse and have an accepted medical usage. Examples of Schedule V drugs can include substances or mixtures containing limited amounts of narcotics.

What Is the Sentence for a Drug Crime?

A conviction for a drug crime can come with severe penalties. Sentencing can vary depending on the type of drug and the nature of the crime. This may include not only lengthy prison sentences and substantial fines but also collateral consequences that can significantly affect various aspects of your life.

Beyond legal ramifications, a conviction could lead to the loss of your job and driver’s license. In addition, it can also harm family relationships and even cause you to lose custody of your children. Given these potential outcomes, it is crucial to have a skilled attorney by your side to advocate for you, work to protect your rights, and navigate the legal system on your behalf.
