USING A COMMUNICATION FACILITY TO VIOLATE GEORGIA'S DRUG LAWS

YOUR CELL PHONE CAN GET YOU IN TROUBLE
 


If you use a communication facility to violate GA drug laws, that is a felony separate from any underlying drug offense. A communication facility can be a telephone, the mail, radio, computer, or other means of communication. You can go to jail for up to 4 years and be fined up to $30,000.

Keep in mind that each separate use of a communication facility constitutes a separate offense. In other words, if you use the telephone 3 different times to effect a drug transaction, you can get up to 12 years in jail and receive a $90,000 fine. And that's in addition to any other penalty you could receive for the drug offense itself.
