Crystal meth, or methamphetamine, is a “schedule II” drug in Georgia, putting it in the same class as cocaine, some opiates and other chemical drugs. It is considered highly addictive and dangerous, which is why the penalties for possession, trafficking or distribution are harsh. Most meth possession convictions can result in a felony and imprisonment. If higher weights are found, distribution equipment or even ingredients needed to manufacture the drug, a person can face up to 25 years or more in prison. In addition, intent to distribute in “drug-free zones” carry higher penalties.
