    So exactly how are these families who need cannabis oil for their children supposed to get it in Georgia?

    Some day, sooner than most of you think, the white men who have ruled this area with an iron fist for the past couple of hundred years won’t be in power.

      To quote one of our brethren, John Konop, “the War on Drugs has been a failure.” He’s right. Legalize it all. That’s me, not John. Open treatment centers for those who cannot handle it. And treat abuse behind the wheel as a DUI.

      That is not the issue. Law Enforcement NEEDS prohibition in order to make themselves complete, just like The Batman does for Joker. They fear lack of control? YOU GOT A BLACK MARKET FOR THAT.

      Perhaps Peake can continue to smuggle oil back from CO in that private jet he as access to.

      Where are these families supposed to get it? Well, you know…. we all know a friend of a friend

      Deal obviously hates babies, but only the born kind. Deal laughs at sick people. He is a canker sore on the private parts of Georgians.

    No list, no-fly or otherwise, created by a gov’t bureaucrat, should be used to deny a Constitutional Right. Ain’t gonna happen.

    Ok, Trump has increased his lead, but it was mostly pre-new comments. Question: has any polster surveyed the general population to see how he’s playing among working class Dems and not just Repub primary voters? That is the billion dollar question. Is it just too early to put the time and expense into such a poll?

    Did anyone hear Isakson advocate that every nominee should get an up or down vote, after McConnell on Monday passed over a 2014 Court of Appeals nominee that had been unanimously passed out of the Judiciary Committee in July?

    Didn’t think so.

    Georgia executed yet another person in our name last night.

    Brian Keith Terrell, convicted of brutally murdering 70-year old John Henry Watson in 1992, was put to death last night for twice refusing plea deals.

    The key witness against him–his cousin–only testified against Mr. Terrell after facing capital charges himself and sitting in prison for over a year. The cousin walked free after serving five years on a robbery plea.

    Mr. Terrell’s first capital murder trial ended in a hung jury. While that jury was deliberating, the state offered Terrell a plea agreement to a term of straight life imprisonment (parole-eligible after seven years). Mr. Terrell refused to consider pleading guilty because he maintained his complete innocence on the murder charge. Prior to his third trial in 2001, Mr. Terrell again refused a different plea offer to a life sentence which at that time included a contract not to seek parole for 18 years.

    Had Terrell accepted either of those plea deals, there’s a good chance he’d be free on parole today. Instead, he was executed last night.

    Hopefully lawmakers read to the end of the Cannabis report so they see the most important (and intelligent) part – “The commission’s report will be finalized and published in the coming weeks. Its recommendations are not binding.”

    It would be interesting to know if the commission offered economic impact and development stats as part of the conclusion. A program like this could re-invigorate formerly prosperous south Georgia ag communities if done properly. Not to mention the medical benefits provided by the crop that many other states recognize to the benefit of their residents. Why would any state say no other than being run by backwardass old farts who haven’t yet figured out how they (he) would profit personally from the program.
