While some aspects of the law are confusing or unclear, there's no question about the legality of driving under the influence of alcohol. In every state, there are laws setting limits for the blood alcohol content (BAC) of any person operating a motor vehicle. Georgia, like the vast majority of states, penalizes anyone who gets behind the wheel with a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher. For those who are under the age of 21, however, the legal BAC is only 0.02 percent.
As a parent, there are few experiences as difficult as learning that your child faces drug possession charges. While no parent wants to receive this news, those whose children face charges while attending college face a very clear fear. In some cases, drug possession convictions can lead to getting expelled from the school or losing precious scholarship funding that the child may need to finish one's education.
