Competing Marijuana Bills: Medical And Now Recreational
Published on 3/4/15
Sen. Curt Thompson is working to pass a bill that would include not only medical marijuana, but recreational as well for his state of Georgia. In a recent news conference he noted the value of marijuana taxes that could help the state's education and transportation programs, while also publicly admitting to having used marijuana recreationally in his own home.
Thompson noted that everyone from former presidents of both political parties to average Joes and Janes have admitted to using marijuana. And when asked about use himself, Thompson said that he has used marijuana recreationally himself. He says, “Straight up? Yes.” But, he adds, “You’re not going to come to my house and find a green haze outside or anything like that.”
