Thankfully, Georgia State Republican lawmaker Tommy Benton is doing what he can to stop the scourge known as marijuana.
In a July 29, 2009 email, Rep. Benton wrote: “Thanks for the email. We will have to agree to disagree on this and whether or not money is wasted (by mandating the state to prosecute minor marijuana offenders). I am opposed to the legalization of marijuana. I think we should go to caning for people caught using and maybe execute dealers.I would also like to suggest rape camps for offenders.
That would solve the problem as well. That is what they do in Singapore and they don’t have a drug problem.Right, but they are super uptight.
At least stoners are mellow people.
However, I am deeply disturbed at some of the nearly 250 comments the story has gotten at the NORML Blog. There are threats of assassinating, shooting, caning, and kicking the ass of Rep. Benton, as well as comparisons to Adolf Hitler. Some have even threatened his wife, children, and family dog and published Rep. Benton’s home telephone number (which I’ve scrubbed).
Stop it!Oh, shit. It's finally here. The stoner/southerner war we've all been waiting for.
