Aug 14 - Cobb county stops misdemeanor pot arrests citing hemp law
 

 
Gwinnett county did the same thing also a few days ago. It seems every county in metro atl is doing this finally image

Cobb County is the latest Georgia jurisdiction to suspend enforcement of some misdemeanor marijuana violations citing the state’s new hemp law.


Earlier this year, Gov. Brian Kemp legalized hemp farming in Georgia. Hemp is a hardy, versatile crop and has been promoted by some as an economic development opportunity for rural areas.

However, hemp and marijuana are closely related and similar in smell and appearance, making it very difficult if not impossible for law enforcement to differentiate the two, officials say.

As a result, Cobb Police Chief Tim Cox recently announced his department would make “a temporary procedural change” until a “remedy” is found.

“After discussions with prosecutors, it appears that arresting someone for misdemeanor marijuana possession is not recommended,” Cox said in a statement. “As a result, effective immediately, any misdemeanor amounts of marijuana that an officer encounters will be confiscated and sent to the Evidence Unit to be destroyed. A criminal charge will not be made until a solution can be found to this dilemma.”

The state of Georgia needs to legalize weed. I'm new to the state and use weed oil sometimes to relax and sh*t.
