He could be correct... supposedly 76,000 new registered voters, Democrats smell blood in the water...could see this greasing the wheels on legalized gambling, as well. I've heard one building ravaged by COVID and loss of renters would convert to hotel/casino with businesses merging into an adjoining building. Increasing traffic and revenue for all buildings in the area. I get it downtown took a huge hit, it will take something to bring back businesses

In case Georgia’s Senate races weren’t high-stakes enough, legal weed is also on the line. The pair of runoff races will determine which party controls the Senate—and whether marijuana legalization has any chance in the coming Congress, Sen. Cory Booker said on VICE’s Cari & Jemele (Won't) Stick to Sports on Thursday.

*shrugs*

Democrats will cheat in this election as well.

Might as well be high as a kite when the left screws us over.

They won't have to cheat this time, between pissed off Republicans and the newly registered voters. Used to be Georgia law that you couldn't vote in a run off if you weren't registered during the general election, another deal allegedly brokered between SOS, the Governor, and Stacy Abrams in their settlement of her lawsuit.

Red voter apathy against Blue voters candidates getting a huge influx of money and exposure makes it a big uphill battle I don't see red Georgia winning.

Just the realities don't make it right or mean I all for it, it is just what is.

Ahh the old casino gambit. Who do they think will use them? Lets ignore the fact that it has been tried in NY and is not living up to it's hype [Even before the lockdowns] How about the number of casinos that already exist? Only so much money is left in the hands of every-day people. As for pot legalization, just a money grab for tax money. Plus lots of folks get all excited for it, that is until they start seeing the mark-ups. Gotta grease lots of wheels before it hits the shelves!

With biden or Harris running the country you're going to need something to numb the pain.

To bad unemployment won't pay enough to afford it.

Look, I'll settle for it as a garnish in my bourbon, but that's it.

Corey Booker sugar coats the election run-up, dangling sweet candy canes in front of the voters, "vote for us! we'll legalize weed!"

What is their /REAL/ agenda though? What is lurking in the depths of that man's psyche? What won't be let out in the light of day until after/when/if his side wins?

I'd get up to speed in this ATS thread for a sneak preview.

What a horrible way to even think of treating Bourbon.

If they legalize weed in GA....they would win. Whichever party does it first will win.

You mentioned greasing the wheels for legalized gambling, could you elaborate a little? Gambling is legal, I'm guessing you just don't have much, if any? I'm from Vegas so it's always been a thing even though I rarely took part in it. It's a little hard to understand a place without gambling with the laws and regulations being different than here.

I could be reading way too much into it, Georgia can be extremely conservative outside of Atlanta, dry counties, beer only counties, etc, etc. for decades. It wasn't long ago that you could finally get beer/and alcohol at a convenience store on Sunday. There's been talk for years to have legal gambling in Atlanta, loosening of the marijuana laws just fits into one of the objections to legal casinos/crime issues in Atlanta. Conservatives always held the line at the legalization of marijuana once it's removed federally, they can't hold it over the opposing side heads anymore in lawmaking. But mostly there is going to be some prime real estate openings and Atlanta needs to convention business if it ever returns. Rumors abound that Georgia politicians on both sides can be bought, our state legislature is still Republican but it's not a supermajority, thus a lot of deal-making and I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine goes on state wide.

Good. Burn this mother #$%&er to the ground.

At this point I'm good with it. I'll smoke dope every day instead of working my ass off.

Good riddance america. Been nice knowing you.

They legalized it here in Michigan 2 years ago and there still isn’t anywhere around here to get any.
There are some places within Detroit city limits but I won’t venture in those areas.

Edit - Not that I indulge that much anyway.

Silly kids. Weed is a backdoor gun ban as having a medical marijuana card doesn’t exempt you from ATF pre-purchase questionnaire about drug use including pot.

Can’t legally buy a gun even if you legally buy weed. Oh, and can’t manufacture firearms either but that is a different story.

Wonder if that holds if it's removed from Schedule C altogether, have no doubt it would be a bargaining point if not. I do not know enough about it honestly I could definitely see it still being heavily regulated here in Georgia regardless. Hell, we just this year got where we can order alcohol and have it shipped here.
