Georgia has made some progress in terms of marijuana policy in recent years. There is now a limited medical marijuana program which allows for the treatment of a few severe medical conditions with a very specific form of marijuana oil. Unfortunately, the form of marijuana oil permitted, oils with THC levels of less than 5 percent, may not be medically sufficient for those with intractable epilepsy or other serious conditions. Worse yet, those who make and sell marijuana extracts and concentrates face severe penalties, as do those who sell marijuana in its natural state for illegal recreational use in Georgia.
Some people believe that first time offenders facing driving under the influence (DUI) charges in Georgia will be treated with leniency. After all, everyone makes mistakes. However, this misconception about the criminal law system could end up costing you a lot, even your job.
