Drug crimes become a bit sweeter, but not in a good way

Many states have legalized the use of marijuana in some capacity. Georgia has voted to allow medical use of the drug, but the infrastructure is not yet in place. In the meantime, there are reports that a new problem is affecting local communities, and may lead to charges of drug crimes for unknowing residents. 

THC, one of the active ingredients in marijuana that can produce a "high" has hit the streets in disguise. This drug can be turned into food ingredients, and a person may possess or consume the drug unwittingly. Often in the form of baked goods, candies and other enticing treats, a person may not be aware that his or her tasty treat is illegal in the state of Georgia. 

A recent story explains that police were called to a middle school because a child had brought candies to school. The child was found to be in possession of a large amount of candy that was designed to look and taste like regular candy, but was laced with marijuana. The pieces were even individually wrapped, and an untrained eye could easily mistake these treats for a legal substance. 

When a person is accused of drug crimes in Georgia, he or she may be nervous and not sure of where to turn for help. It can be a frightening time for a person accused, and many people in this situation seek compassionate help from an experienced attorney. An attorney can help a client make his or her way through each step of the legal process, and present a solid defense focused on achieving a favorable outcome for the accused.
