According to a CNN report released this month, Alaska will become the latest state to legalize recreational marijuana, bringing the count up to three states that have legalized the use of the drug so far. While some might say that Alaska's decision to legalize marijuana illustrates the changing opinion about the drug, it's important for our Georgia readers to remember one important thing: the drug is still considered illegal here in our state and you can face prosecution if you are caught with it.
Now, we realize that some of our more frequent readers may have friends or family who live in states that have legalized the use of the drug. In some cases, these friends and family members may be tempted to send you some marijuana via the United States Postal Service. If this is the case for you, we suggest you hold that thought because the decision to follow through with this action could mean you or someone you love is breaking federal drug laws.
