AJC – Georgia’s Libertarian Party on marijuana: Legalize it

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) reports on the Libertarian Party of Georgia’s stance on Marijuana (cannabis) – You guessed it LEGALIZE IT!

Legalize-Marihuana---No-Victim-No-CrimeBy Nicholas Fouriezos: The Libertarian Party of Georgia has a simple message regarding marijuana: legalize it. Not just medical marijuana. All of it. The socially liberal, fiscally conservative party threw its voice into a statewide conversation about Georgia’s marijuana laws with a press release Wednesday, urging lawmakers to follow recent legalization movements in Colorado and Washington. “Georgia voters should be allowed to vote on the issue,” said Doug Craig, the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Georgia. “If the voters were allowed to vote, we believe they would vote to legalize.”  Read more here>>>

Marijuana – Time to Legalize

Libertarians: Yes to Marijuana Legalization – The time has come
marijuana-leafJuly 30, 2014 – Atlanta GA: As marijuana (cannabis) continues to make headline news, Georgia Libertarians say it’s time to reform Georgia’s marijuana laws.

 
In July, Washington became the second state in the nation to legalize cannabis (marijuana) for recreational use following Colorado’s move just six months ago. Nearly half of the states have some form of medical marijuana laws and a growing number of states have lessened the penalties for possession. The New York Times has generated a fresh debate by coming out in support of legalization and Libertarian Party of Georgia’s gubernatorial candidate Andrew Hunt said as governor he would sign marijuana reform legislation.
So is Georgia ready to consider such a move?

 
YES – says Libertarian Party of Georgia chairman Doug Craig. [Read more...]

Who is Andrew Hunt?

andrew_hunt_2We know about Carter and Deal, but who is Andrew Hunt? By Raoul Duke III

The 2014 Georgia gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014. Though there has been much talk and coverage about the Republican candidate Nathan Deal and the Democratic candidate Jason Carter, there has been little reference to the Libertarian candidate Andrew Hunt. Who is Hunt and what does he stand for? Read more at Peachtree NORML

“I am an engineer and innovator who wants to solve problems in the most cost effective ways,” Hunt said. “I work my faith in God to carry out Christ’s teachings of love and not judging people. I firmly believe we need to give people a hand up and reduce handouts. Effectively enabling people to be capable and independent produces less need for social support. I, also, believe we do not need law makers, but instead need law erasers that will restore our freedoms and rights. Government should not determine the ‘right way’ to live life nor restrict personal choices.” Andrew Hunt

STAND FOR LIBERTY? Vote Swafford

Opinion by Brock Gallops  – STAND FOR LIBERTY? SWAFFORD MUST BE YOUR CHOICE

Amanda
If you stand for Liberty, then you have only one choice on the ballot this November for U.S. Senate out of Georgia, whether you are Libertarian, Republican, or Independent. Last night, we watched on as David Purdue edged Jack Kingston in the U.S. Senate primary run off for Republicans. Purdue who is known for being smooth yet arrogant has been under constant scrutiny from Republicans this whole race. He has been said to be more of a Liberal Democrat, and there was more negativity surrounding campaigns against him than I have seen in the past when it comes to statewide Georgia races. Well, you now have Michelle Nunn (D), David Purdue (R-d), and our Liberty lady Amanda Swafford (L) for the U.S. Senate race. If you stand for Liberty, your vote November 4th must go to the Liberty lady or else you may be part of our problem. [Read more...]
