Facing drug charges in Georgia for multiple offenses, especially those involving drug trafficking and possession with the intent to distribute, can lead to several harsh and life-changing consequences if an individual is convicted. Some of these serious penalties may include prison time, serving probation, steep fines, mandatory drug rehabilitation programs, community service, and loss of certain civil liberties such as the right to own a handgun, the right to vote, and the ability to obtain some kinds of employment.
