South Georgia weighs in on legal pot in Colorado

Posted: Updated:
AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Now that recreational marijuana use is now legal in Colorado, proponents say the legalization will prove the benefits of marijuana outweigh the costly war on drugs.

But some South Georgians aren't convinced the substance is harmless.

"At this point, I've never used it, and I really don't know what it does," said Americus resident Niral Patel. "So instead of letting political people decide, I'd rather have science people decide whether we need it or not."

Several people told WALB legalization of marijuana will create more problems, and all of them said they don't forsee a similar industry opening in Georgia.
