Activists to Push Legislature for Medical Marijuana in Georgia

“If they can decriminalize crimes such as theft, burglary, and forgery–they did enact legislation to drop the penalties–then certainly they can look at marijuana laws and lower the penalties for that,” Bell said.

“Decriminalize it, medicalize it, I’m open to almost any form of reform,” Bell said.

Bell said he wants the Legislature in 2013 to create a special committee to study the issues of marijuana law reform, to report back for action during the Legislative Session in 2014.

“A person who smokes marijuana does not commit a crime against another person, it’s a victimless crime.  It’s a crime against the government,” Bell said.
