Drug Trafficking Laws in Georgia

Trafficking involves a range of activities, from importing drugs from another country, smuggling them through border crossings, sales and distribution. If the alleged crime took place entirely within our state, you will most likely be charged under Georgia Code § 16-13-30 (2012), which makes it a felony with a penalty of up to 30 years in state prison, of which 5 must be served without parole. In the event that you are accused of trafficking drugs across state or international borders, you will likely be charged with a federal crime. Federal trafficking penalties range up to life in prison, with fines that can reach as high as $75 million in the worst cases.

Information About Drug Trafficking

Marietta is included in the Drug Enforcement Agency's Atlanta High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), given the fact that the metro area is a commercial hub for the Southeast region. Significant quantities of drugs are transported into the area from Mexico for distribution into local markets, as well as large amounts of drugs being produced in manufacturing operations.

The DEA lists cocaine and crystal meth as being the two primary drug threats in the region, though law enforcement agencies at all levels are cracking down on trafficking activities involving other substances including marijuana, heroin, opium, ecstasy and pharmaceutical drugs. If you have been charged with drug trafficking, it is highly advisable that you obtain the highest quality legal representation available. At Henrickson & Sereebutra clients can rest assured that their case is in excellent hands with over 40 years of combined legal experience.
