Georgia Representative Recommends Caning and Death Penalty for Marijuana Offenses

August 12, 2009 at 10:04 pm 1 comment

Georgia Representative Tommy Benton has voiced support for caning and executing marijuana offenders. When his constituents contacted him to voice their opposition, he responded by turning their names over to the local sheriff so that they ‘could be on the lookout’.

In other words, he has just violated the First Amendment (freedom of speech) and the Eighth Amendment (cruel and unusual punishment) in one fell swoop.

To give you an idea of how brutal this punishment is, we have some pictures, courtesy of NORML and CORPUN. (Warning: Pictures are located after the jump due to their extremely graphic nature).

How is it justified to be a drunk than to smoke one and have an inteligent discussions. when you get drunk there is no discussions smoke one and you can still talk to that person. But its ok to be a drunk in america go georgia we have some pretty ignorant people that run our state do you agree?
