  • If you have under an ounce of marijuana in Georgia it is a misdemeanor, but all drug convictions get your license suspended:
    • 6 months for a first offense, a year for a second offense, and after that, 2-year suspensions.
    • Depending on your unique situation, you could pay a fine of up to $1,000 and spend a year in jail.
