News reports of airline travel being back to 90 percent of pre-covid flying will lead to more scrutiny at the airport for passengers flying into Atlanta’ s airport. Atlanta has the world’s largest airport: Jackson-Hartsfield International Airport. In a discussion I had with a DEA agent, he told me on every flight from California, Arizona, and Colorado there will be a passenger on the flight with a large amount of trafficking marijuana. Even though Marijuana is legal in some states, it is still illegal in Georgia. If you get stopped by Clayton County, Drug Enforcement Agents or Atlanta Police, and you are found to be carrying greater than ten pounds of marijuana in your luggage you will be arrested for Marijuana Trafficking and taken to the Clayton County Jail. In all cases, the first appearance judge will deny you a bond. On every case our firm has been hired to assist couriers charged with marijuana trafficking in Atlanta, we have been able to get the client a bond in Clayton County. In order to get a bond, you need to acquire copies of the warrants and incident reports. The state’s prosecutor in Clayton County will want to run the subject’s criminal history. Once those items are acquired, you can get a consent bond and bond out of jail. It is also helpful if the person traveling has money (shows they are a courier and not seller), they fly very infrequently and they were cooperative to law enforcement. However, people flying should never consent to a search of their luggage, as consent is voluntary and nobody should be subject to search of their person or personal effects such as luggage without a warrant. If you or a loved one gets charged with marijuana trafficking at the Atlanta Airport, please do not hesitate to call our law office so we can assist with representation. Our phone number is 404-581-0999.
