>>>”“Why aren’t Georgia Legislators listening?” After working in marijuana reform for more than 20 years, I’d be surprised if it was a reason much different from the resistance we have always encountered in every state. Because police and prosecutors build their careers and empires on the fraudulent marijuana prohibition. Because industries like alcohol and pharmaceuticals don’t want the competition. Because other interests like the drug treatment/testing industry and the prison industries depend on it for their life’s blood. Because many banks and shaky corporations couldn’t exist without the laundered money. Because corrupt politicians, like Richard Nixon, use the insane war on marijuana consumers to oppress and prevent community organizing of minorities and progressive groups. The billions of dollars made by drug gangs have not been buried in the ground. They are invested in legitimate business, creating more powerful support of this war on Americans. Add to these all the ancillary industries that sell to or service the above groups, and you begin to understand the enormity of the greed-driven resistance. Thank goodness we are overcoming even this massive resistance. – That’s the power of the truth and dedicated, courageous reformers!
