Possession With Intent to Distribute Marijuana in Georgia

Posted by Ben Sessions | Oct 06, 2014 | 0 Comments

If you have been charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana in Georgia, you must first realize how seriously this charge is. It is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

(j)(1) It shall be unlawful for any person to possess, have under his or her control, manufacture, deliver, distribute, dispense, administer, purchase, sell, or possess with intent to distribute marijuana.

2) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (c) of Code Section 16-13-31 or in Code Section 16-13-2, any person who violates this subsection shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by imprisonment for not less than one year nor more than ten years.


If you have been charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana in Georgia, you have probably notice how many different elements there are to the charge. The elements are the things that the State is required to prove in order to obtain a conviction for this charge. The State is required to show that you possessed it and that you intended to distribute the marijuana. In many cases, whether you possessed the marijuana and whether you intended to distribute the marijuana are highly questionable, and those issues can provide us with a basis to defend the charge.
