Georgia Lawmaker Calls For 'Caning' &
Executing Marijuana Offenders

August 12th, 2009 By: Paul Armentano,
[NORML Deputy Director]

State Republican lawmaker Tommy Benton (31st House District) favors “caning'minor' marijuana offenders and “executing
those who sell the drug, according to a recent correspondence sent by the representative to a constituent.

In a July 29, 2009 e-mail (which was voluntarily forwarded to the NORML office), Rep. Benton wrote:

“Thanks for the email. We will have to agree to disagree on this and whether or not money is wasted (by mandating the state to prosecute minor marijuana offenders). I am opposed to the legalization of marijuana. I think we should go to caning for people caught using and maybe execute dealers. [emphasis NORML’s] That would solve the problem as well. That is what they do in Singapore and they don’t have a drug problem.”


'Caning' is a form of corporal punishment consisting of up to 24 violent lashes with a long rattan cane that has been
soaked in water. The procedure inflicts intense pain and deep, bloody lacerations that can
take several months to heal.



Rep. Benton followed up his remarks in a separate e-mail on August 11 (also forwarded to NORML) in which he threatened to turn over the
names of citizens who disagreed
with his political viewpoints to local law enforcement.

He wrote:

“You and your cronies want it (marijuana) legalized so you can get a hit anytime without having to worry about getting arrested. I have forwarded your email to the Lowndes County sheriffs office so that they can be on the lookout for you. [emphasis NORML’s] Consider this my last correspondence on the the subject to you or anyone else who shares your similar “conservative views’.”


For those of you wondering - this is
the result of 'Caning' :

Another reason to say Fuck the South. Guess he ran out of brown people to beat and had to go to threatening herb enthusiasts. Right now I live way too close to fuckers like Benton, and I can't wait to leave. Perhaps I should send him an email and fed-ex a mouth swab and invite him to forward my name and address to the cops. No chance they'll find shit except a lawsuit if there's ever a search on my residence.

Sheesh, but this kind of legislator makes me feel downright beligerent.

so you treat a non violent offence with violence. Yea we used to be able to beat the shit outta our wives to funny no one suggested killing or caning those people huh. Well at least we know the quality of people that represent the well being of citizens in america. Thank God this is just a temporal place where we determine what quality of soul we will possess. Gods got somethin comin for people like him. I wouldnt wanna be any where near that guy.

This proves the prejudice that made the drug illegal is still alive and strong. It is criminal behaviour like this that should be punished, not the people who love the weed.

Can't wait until he gets caught with a bag of dope.

Or possibly some sort of prostitute, that seems to be par for the course these days :lol:

It seems that he's reporting people to their local sheriff's office, so maybe not the best idea. Anonymously, though...

Amen to that. But in the same respect people like that should not be allowed to hold a political office, just too extreme.

I don't hate him- in fact I love him so much I'd like to give him a bag of weed- anonymously, of course- maybe leave it under his seat.

Then I'd report his car as stolen.

There's a town in North Carolina that is the county seat that has a law from the 1800's that is still on the books as valid that allows a man to beat his wife between the time of 12:00 and 12:01 PM to beat his wife without being prosecuted as long as they reside in that county at the time of the beating.

Vile huh? There's some real backassward folks in this world..always have been and always will be.
