Your child's a good kid. Unfortunately, you can't say the same thing about some of their friends. Maybe you trust their friends, but they're talking about driving to Fort Lauderdale for spring break. Who knows what kind of people they'll run in to? You've seen those spring break movies. Maybe you lived a few of them yourself back in the day.
Many teens and young adults may have been exposed to marijuana, and many others probably have a friend or at least know somebody who uses the drug. Especially with social attitudes toward marijuana changing, many young people may use the drug themselves on occasions.
Many prosecutions for drug charges begin with a traffic stop. What happens during this stressful experience can have a major impact on a person's ability to effectively defend themselves against drug charges later on.
Cumming-area parents understand that their teens may not always make the best decisions.

When a Georgia resident is accused of committing a crime, many people take it for granted that the accused must have committed the crime in question. However, false accusations and misunderstandings are very common in criminal law, which is why the accused is always entitled to a criminal defense.
It is likely that many Georgia residents are unaware of how easy it is for teens to get their hands on drugs they should not have.

Most Forsyth area residents understand that drugs are illegal and law enforcement aggressively prosecutes anyone who is suspected of engaging in drug activities. Those who are found to be in possession, selling or manufacturing of drugs can feel like the entire world is against them.

In Georgia, there might be a perception that drug charges will be made when a person is selling drugs at any level or is caught with the drugs in his or her possession for personal use or otherwise. However, there are many situations in which a person can face allegations of drug violations and there can be severe penalties if there is a conviction. In some cases, a person is in a position of authority and has access to drugs - often prescription drugs - and will be accused of taking them. When this happens, it is just as important to have a strong defense as it is with other types of drug cases.
