What happens if you're caught in possession of cocaine?

Despite its reputation as something of a party drug, cocaine is also commonly used by people in professional circles. The boost of energy and focus it provides can help someone conquer a heavy workload and still make it home in time for dinner. Of course, the drug is also quite expensive, creates some medical risk and can be very addictive. Cocaine is not legal for the public to use because of the potential for abuse and the health risks abuse could cause.

Synthetic marijuana is illegal, even if you buy it at a store

For years, a semi-legal market for synthetic substitute drugs thrived in the United States, including here in Georgia. There were a whole range of products, from pills called Molly intended to duplicate the effects of MDMA to bath salts which gave a stimulating high similar to that of meth or cocaine. These drugs were almost all created using so-called "research chemicals" imported from China. Labeled as not for human consumption, they were sold to people who clearly intended to consume them.

Has your prescription drug addiction lead to criminal charges?

For many people, opioid, opiate and even heroin addiction start with an illness or injury. One day, something happens that causes serious pain. It could be a car accident or joint replacement surgery. Whatever the reason, you seek out medical care. Your doctor, in turn, provides you with a prescription for very strong and highly addictive painkillers. When your underlying condition improves, your prescription ends. Unfortunately, your dependence on the medication does not.
