Crack Charge Defense in Atlanta
Defense from Our Atlana Drug Crime Attorney
The street drug crack is a highly concentrated and smokable form of cocaine.
It is considered one of the most dangerous and addictive drugs in the
culture, and is a Schedule II controlled substance.
Drug possession charges related to crack are extremely dangerous. Crack cocaine is considered
to be one of the most dangerous threats to the public health and safety,
and even possession of a minor amount will usually lead to felony drug charges.
If the police determine that the amount of drugs in your possession is
beyond the amount considered to be reasonable for one person to consume,
or if other items commonly associated with drug trafficking are alleged
to have been found in your possession, the charges may be elevated to
drug possession with intent to sell.
Penalties for a Crack Conviction
Cocaine and derivatives such as crack are Schedule II drugs, which means
possession of any amount is a felony punishable by up to 15 years in state
prison. Possession of more than 28 grams will lead to charges of possession
with intent to sell, and the prison sentence imposed could be as long
as 30 years. Repeat offenses are more heavily punished. Other schedule
II drugs include crack, opium, and meth. These drugs usually carry the
heaviest punishments, as well as charges related to the illegal use or
sale of prescription medications.
