Georgia Marijuana Law Reform

Georgia Marijuana Law Reform

      Lithia Springs, GA

Medical Marijuana: In 1980 Georgia approved a medical marijuana research law recognizing the medical benefits of cannabis.

Today, 20 states and the District of Columbia have passed medical marijuana laws allowing their citizens access to legal medicine without being considered a criminal.

Criminal Laws / Decriminalization: Each day in Georgia more than 80 people are arrested for marijuana, mostly for simple possession. The vast majority are otherwise law abiding citizens.

Two states have legalized marijuana and other states have decriminalized (lowered the penalties) for possession of marijuana. In Georgia more than one ounce (28 grams) is a felony with up to 10 years in state prison.

Public Opinion: Polls across the nation show a majority of citizens no longer support harsh marijuana laws. In many states more than 70% support medical marijuana.

We seek to reform the laws of Georgia, USA.

To:
As Citizens of Georgia we seek to legalize medical marijuana (cannabis) and remove criminal penalties for personal use amounts. We urge the lawmakers of Georgia to reform these harmful laws.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
