ATLANTA — The move to legalize recreational marijuana is gaining some traction in the state capitol, but the lawmaker behind it admits it won't be easy.
Given the fact that Georgia has a GOP-controlled legislature and it's an election year, Channel 2 political reporter Richard Elliot learned the chances the state will legalize recreational marijuana is slim, but the bill's sponsor told Elliot that support is growing.
“The historical trends and the political trends nationally, and even here in Georgia, are on our side,” state senator Curt Thompson, D-Tucker, said.
Thompson said he knows he’s fighting an uphill battle, but, once again, he’s introduced a measure that could legalize recreational marijuana.
