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
