A Georgia man was arrested for trafficking after law enforcement confiscated a large amount of edibles. Fox 5 reported that that the man purchased the edibles from California and sought to have them delivered through the mail to Georgia. Before they arrived to him, however, the postal inspector and deputies confiscated the drugs. It is not shocking that the drugs were confiscated in the mail; postal inspectors are well-trained in identifying packages containing drugs. Oftentimes, postal inspectors are even able convince people to come to the post office to pick up the package containing illegal drugs!
This man, charged with trafficking, had obviously purchased a substantial amount of edibles - such a large amount that it constituted trafficking. Did you know, however, that possession of just one of these edibles is a felony in Georgia? That is right. If you had bought or possessed just one edible from this man you could be subjected to felony prosecution and years in the Georgia State Prison system.
There is a common misconception that any possession of marijuana less than one ounce is a misdemeanor, but many people are unaware that when food/candy, or something else, becomes infused with THC oil it becomes a felony whether its less than one gram, less than an ounce, or more.
Contact a Newnan Defense Attorney if you find yourself charged with possession of marijuana edibles.
