Georgia Controlled Substance Act

The Georgia Controlled Substance Act states that any possession of a controlled substance is a felony or misdemeanor. The severity of a Violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act depends on the type of drugs a person allegedly possesses and the amount.

Georgia has established a Controlled Substances Act that classifies drugs and their component parts into “schedules” based on the addictiveness of the substance as well as its medical value. The most dangerous and likely to be abused drugs fall into Schedule I and II, including heroin, LSD, cocaine, Ecstasy, and methamphetamine.
