If you use any of your property to violate the GA Controlled Substances
Statute (Georgia's drug laws), that property can be declared contraband and you will lose
it. In other words, if you do something as simple as drive your
friend to buy a drug, you could lose your car. If you use your house
or land to grow marijuana, you will lose your real estate. And of
course, drug agents love to confiscate your money.

Many will not consider hiring someone who has a drug conviction.
