    20 years behind us southern states and NEW YORK, sad and scary….nobody denies freedoms like the south, nobody…the top ten incarcerators on the planet are southern states and more blacks are in prison then were slaves before the civil war…even if marijuana reforms did pass the republiCANTS in charge would deny you all your freedoms, centuries of practice…no matter though, we never planned on getting your backwards brethren from day one, half the country already but not one southern state, lol…not 1….the new generations are taking over in the south and they are nothing like their freedom denying parents, let’s ride…

    AMERICA’S WAR ON DRUGS IS A WAR ON AMERICANS! 33

    there are more black ppl in jail then slaves in the civil war? thats because there are a few million more black people jack ass read the news and leave it alone.

  3. The activist says:

    Here we are ruining a young mans name just to keep a “juicy” story. I can see if he committed a violent crime and was a serious threat to society. He was hit with multiple charges, faces serious jail time, and had his name drug through the mud for doing something that had been decriminalized in over 20 states and 3 states allowing use of marijuana recreationally in at least 3 states with more to come. The states that have allowed recreational use have nearly triple there state tax revenue and seen at least a 35% decrease in crime. With that being said, the “war on drugs” is a complete joke that victimizes poverty strickened people. I think the police should use our tax payer dollars to fight REAL CRIME and the journalist who wrote this article needs to report on things that actually matter…stuff the people really need to know about

      Excuse the typographical error

      I guess we didn’t read the same article. They didn’t bust some college kid who was hitting the bong in his dorm room while listening to techno. They busted a convicted felon for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute(over a pound, that’s a lot), possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

      People today always have to make the victim out of the criminals. I live by the laws as do most of society. No maybe we don’t agree with them but we voted in the gluteal chapeaus who write the laws so deal with it or change it.

      Personally I think they should legalize pot and tax the ever loving crap out of..I mean like a 25% tax on it along with alcohol and tobacco. People will still buy them and then we can lower taxes on necessities.

  4. Concerned says:

    There is illegal, there is legal! Until changes are made it is your choice to abide by the laws or break the laws of Georgia! Simple enough!

  5. Change says:

    Why don’t we concerned citizens change the laws of Georgia?
    We can petition the laws to change, but people will have to sign it.
    Where are all the brave americans who want to change society peacefully?

    Ronald (McDonald) Reagan made up the “War on Drugs”.
    Now that he’s dead, we need to say goodbye to this war also.
