Georgia Defenses to Intentionally Inhaling Model Glue
O.C.G.A. §16-13-91 requires that the inhalation of model glue be intentional. Any evidence that the inhalation was accidental will be essential in fighting your case. A Georgia Dangerous Drug Attorney can help present your evidence and argue for a dismissal of your case.
Another defense is if it was inhaled for medical or dental purposes. Then there is no crime.
