Many cars have faulty taillights and their drivers don't know about the problem until a police officer pulls them over to tell them about it. The driver may even be grateful to find out about the safety hazard. However, it's quite common for Georgia drivers to be pulled over for a minor traffic violation only to end up facing drug charges.
Often, when one thinks of drug violations and illegal drugs, what comes to mind is marijuana, cocaine and other hardcore drugs. However, being accused of using or distributing prescription drugs, such as steroids, are still serious drug charges and still need a strong defense.
Not all drug charges involve prohibited substances such as marijuana -- with the exception of medical marijuana in some states -- heroin or cocaine. Some drug charges involve completely legal prescription drugs, but the charges come from how or who is using or possessing the drugs. For example, a person using an ADHD medication prescribed to another person could be charged with possession charges.
