Paulding DA not prosecuting pot possession as police agencies go 'case by case' on arrests

 

Paulding's district attorney has stopped prosecuting some cases until a new testing method is found or a law is updated to make it clear to officers the legal and illegal parts of the same plant.

 

The new law allows buyers to possess hemp with a THC concentration of 0.3 percent or less, according to the news website Curbed Atlanta.

However, some Georgia prosecutors and judges have said the new law has made it difficult for police agencies to enforce marijuana laws.

The most advanced testing methods reportedly only determine the presence of THC but not the amount within the plant -- making it difficult to determine whether it is legal hemp or the illegal part which has much higher THC levels.

Paulding County District Attorney Dick Donovan said GBI officials recently said they are developing new testing methods that can determine the difference.

In my opinion this has always been the issue with legalizing marijuana. If there is an accident there is no test for levels that are accurate. Now there is no way to test percentages in what is found in one's possession. You can buy it rolled just like a joint and it smells and looks the same. Vaping it is the same people can get illegal strength oil and edibles. 

Some of the newer generation weed is strong enough to be incapacitating to some people.
