How The Georgia Hemp Farming Act Affects You

The Georgia Hemp Farming Act legalized hemp in Georgia, this year. Currently, law enforecement technology in GA cannot differentiate between hemp and marijuana, making it difficult for the government to prosecute marijuana cases in Georgia. Before you whip out your bong to celebrate - please know that you can be arrested and you can be prosecuted - but proving your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt is a different story. Additionally, there is a statute of limitations of 4 years on felony marijuana cases - so District Attorneys may not be quick to dsmiss large marijuana cases - as they are hoping that the Georgia Crime Lab will soon have the technology to allow them to resume prosecution of marijuana cases.
