Penalties for Marijuana Cultivation in Atlanta, GA
Marijuana cultivation is always tried as a felony offense. If you are found
guilty of marijuana cultivation, the judge will consider a number of factors
before imposing a sentence. First and foremost, the judge will take into
consideration the quantity of marijuana or cannabis that was cultivated.
Other important factors such as whether or not the drugs were being cultivated
for sale, as well as whether or not you have any prior drug convictions
on your criminal record, will be taken into account by the court. After
considering all factors, the judge will impose a sentence.
Common penalties for marijuana cultivation in Atlanta include incarceration
for no less than one year, large fines, probation, community service,
drug treatment, driver's license suspension, and a mark on your permanent
record. Furthermore, a drug conviction will result in more than just legal
ramifications. Having a drug conviction on your record will be detrimental
to your reputation, and can make it very difficult to find a quality job,
obtain loan, or earn certain professional licenses.
