Pot Candy and Kronic Kandy banned in Georgia

Georgia Law Bans Retailers From Selling 'Pot Candy' To Minors

POSTED: 10:26 am EDT May 7, 2008
UPDATED: 11:17 am EDT May 7, 2008

Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue signed a measure into law Wednesday that bans the sale of "marijuana flavored products" to minors -- anyone under 18 -- and calls for a fine of up to $500 for each offense.

The measure takes effect July 1st.

It targets businesses that sell the candies with drug-inspired names such as "Kronic Kandy" and "Pot Suckers."

The law says the candies promote drug use.

Senator Doug Stoner pushed the bill in the senate. "I don't think that folks are aware this is going on," Stoner told Channel 2 in April. "It's mainly, from what I can tell, particularly targeted to minority communities."

State Representative Judy Manning said she was shocked to receive death threats over the bill to ban the candy. "Some people think their rights are their rights," she said.

Manning said the Georgia Bureau of Investigation traced her e-mail threat to Great Britain. “You just deal with those kinds of folks and do the best you can. But it sends the wrong kind of message to kids.”

Vote Hemp, a national organization that promotes the use of hemp products and tracks legislation, says the measure would make Georgia the first state to ban the sale of the candy to minors.


Couple things...
I've never heard of such a candy, but why on Gods green earth would you want a candy flavored to taste like marijuana? That just sounds nasty.

Secondly, I hope I'm not the only one who found it quite funny that it was Senator Stoner who pushed the legislation on this ban.

No kidding. There needs to be a tax increase to make sure this law is enforced.

Well, clearly pot suckers are a gateway in to marijuana smoking, much like those candy cigarettes were to me. I smoke three packs a day because the government didn't want to protect me from developing bad habits as a kid from eating those pure sugar sticks shaped like cigarettes. Damn the government for not protecting me!

Anyone ever try weed induced brownies, cupcakes? There's no way they're selling them suckers on taste alone.

Sounds like Rep. Manning has been partaking of more than just pot-flavored candy.

Oooooh, no thanks. Last time I smoked that stuff they found me on top of the Sears tower trying to build a nest.
