People Need to realize that marIjuana is not as harmful as alcohol, it heals, it can change lives. It’s time for Georgia to get on board with this. We are seeing a change of public view on marijuana across the nation. for heck’s sake the nation’s capital just legalized marijuana. The war on drugs is more so the war on brown people or people of color in the state of Ga and that’s just the truth. I’m tired of seeing people getting arrested and lives being ruined over a plant. Georgia could become the fIrst southern state to legalize but sad to say i don’t think it will happen next year. Georgia’s congress if full of conservative republicans who want to keep black people in jail for Weed. But I’m very optimistic, I hope that something can get done soon.
