"Marijuana" Candy Banned In Georgia
ATLANTA (AP) - March 21, 2007 -- The Georgia House has overwhelmingly passed a measure banning the sale of marijuana-flavored candies to minors.
The legislation says the candies, with drug-inspired names such as "Kronic Kandy" and "Pot Suckers," promote drug use.
Marketers argue the treats, flavored with hemp essential oil, which gives them the grassy taste of marijuana, are a harmless novelty.
Some critics fear the Legislature is overstepping its bounds by attempting to legislate taste.
The measure now moves to the state Senate.
