Should you go to prison if you smoke pot in Georgia? One group plans to argue emphatically that you should not.

Hilarious. The removal of Sunday alcohol laws pulled our morality into the 20th century. Legal pot in Georgia will become a faith issue fast. It will also be protested by the infrastructure that supports prohibition.

I don't see this for 20 more years in Georgia.

Someone will find a Bible reference to weed. They seem to find everything else in there.

I live in this retard filled, racist, bible thumping cesspool of a state and let me reassure you that logic does not prevail in the south. It'll be 10 years before that even become a discussion....in the meanwhile backward idiot places like Georgia, already being abandoned by all who have the ability, will just become even more unattractive. Why live here and smoke weed and risk prison over an ounce when it's a $150 ticket in many states and legal in 2? The only way it will change quicker is if the sane northerners keep invading Atlanta and pushing the stupids farther out.

I think it's in the Book of Antiquities by Josephus that Jesus is described as a teenager. At one point he injured his ankle and chewed hashish to dull the pain, a common remedy in that time.

Marijuana is safer than alcohol. There are several southern states looking at regulating marijuana like alcohol. Including Georgia!

Please support H.R. Bill 499 (2013) take marijuana off the schedule

Georgia has a medical marijuana law in the books from 30 years ago.

I would like to see marijuana decriminalized here too..however, it should also be taxed with oversight-just like alcohol and tobacco. Make marijuana users pay their fair share.

whether someone believe using marijuana is good or bad.. why wasted our tax dollars throwing someone in jail over a non violent drug like marijuana. A waste of police resources, jail space and taxes. Our jails are overcrowded already!

Oh I'd love to know the details on that one. But I seriously doubt it has any teeth. Just having the stuff in Georgia can get you arrested. If you have more than an ounce it's a felony.

Yep,and getting caught in a random pee test at work will get you fired with a DRD on your records. You still get a DUI if an officer has you tested and there goes your insurance rates. Legalizing for simple possession won't change that.

But,but Colorado just passed all those new anti-gun and pro-pot laws. The laws the liberals wanted were passed, what happened?
