😲 Georgia bill advances for police to make arrests for hemp or marijuana…

Hello Hemp Family. We have a cause for action. Time to stand up and make some calls to our representatives to uphold our federally legal right to possess hemp in the state of Georgia.

A new bill would make it a crime to transport hemp plants without paperwork showing it was produced under a farming or processing license. Violators would face up to a year in jail or a $1,000 fine for possession of less than an ounce — the same penalty as misdemeanor marijuana.

Police across Georgia would be empowered to arrest people for possession of small amounts of green leafy substances, even if they can’t tell whether it’s illegal marijuana or legal hemp, according to a bill that passed a state House committee Tuesday.

Hemp flower has become a top seller The Georgia Hemp Company since the passing of the Federal Farm Bill in 2018. 

When a customer purchases a 1g joint, quarter or Oz from us yes they will have to drive home in their car with it. We also ship… We put all products in a non see through bag, along with a receipt on where it was purchased, with the federal farm bill disclosure stating the product is legal under the 2018 Farm bill and states the product is tested and is under the .3% tHC delta 9 by dry weight.

All labs for the product and chain of custody from the farm is also available. 

“What’s happening here is the criminalizing of a legal substance,” Causey said. “What this bill does is it treats hemp as marijuana for the purposes of prosecution.” Mazie Lynn Causey, a lobbyist for the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

And state Rep. Matthew Wilson, a Democrat from Brookhaven, questioned why the state would make it a crime to possess hemp after the federal government has passed laws and regulations stating that it’s not considered a controlled substance like marijuana

“We’re treating it as if it’s a criminal product,” Turner said. “We have the ability to do a test. We’re choosing not to. Why aren’t we just taking the steps necessary to establish the criminal behavior on a product that’s actually illegal?” Opposition to the bill came from state Rep. Scot Turner, a Republican from Holly Springs.
