Two Georgia residents facing drug charges after driving too slowly

Many Georgia residents have read Aldous Huxley's fictional masterpiece, "Brave New World." The book takes place in the future where a perfect drug called Soma gives users a happy feeling without causing any negative side effects, and its use is actually encouraged by authorities. In today's world, however, drug charges can lead to a criminal record which can be extremely detrimental to one's future.

Two Georgia residents now face drug charges after a pickup truck was pulled over for allegedly driving too slow and not maintaining its lane. The pickup truck had four passengers in it, one of whom had an outstanding arrest warrant. Upon a voluntary search, police claim they discovered a small amount of meth in one man's cigarette. The 33-year-old had previous arrests for marijuana and cocaine.

After discovering the meth, a 17-year-old female passenger allegedly told police that the 33-year-old had given her some items to hide in her bra. Police then said they discovered several more illegal drugs. The man now faces drug charges of possession of methamphetamine while the young woman faces possession of a schedule II, IV or V controlled substance with intent to distribute. The other two passengers were not charged.

Individuals charged by police with drug charges as a result of a traffic stop could face harsh penalties if found guilty. Depending on the drug and its amount as well as the alleged user's intent, drug charges have the potential to destroy one's future. Individuals with a criminal background of drug charges can face even more serious consequences, including mandatory minimal jail time and heavy fines.

However, for many, drug diversion programs and reduced charges may be are available to help defendants get their lives back on track. A legal professional may provide helpful advice for any Georgia residents facing drug charges.
