How The State Views Marijuana Trafficking And Distribution Charges
Marijuana trafficking charges are determined solely by weight. In Georgia, the trafficking weight for marijuana is possession of ten pounds or more. Sentences for marijuana trafficking begin at five years.
Marijuana distribution charges are determined by evidence of distribution such as the presence of packaging materials, scales and marijuana packaged for sale. The sentencing range for marijuana distribution can be up to ten years. Even possession of a misdemeanor amount of marijuana (less than one ounce) if that marijuana is packaged for sale will result in a felony charge and the possibility of a ten-year sentence.
Cohen & Hirsch has experience in challenging the legal issues related to the automobile searches and search warrants that often lead to marijuana trafficking and marijuana distribution charges.
