In light of yesterday’s disturbing email exchange between Rep. Tommy Benton (GA 31st Dist.) and one of his constituents I thought it might be fun to see who all would be caned in Georgia should any such ridiculous law be passed.
Let’s start at the top.
Newt Gingrich would be caned. (Truthfully I’d kinda like to see that)
“Smoking marijuana was a sign we were alive and in graduate school in that era.”

Rep. Paul Broun, and his son, Paul Collins Broun III would be caned .The elder Broun admitted smoking marijuana in the past and his son was busted for possession recently. Whoever sold them the marijuana would be executed. Let’s hope we never find out who that was. Rep. Broun is a colleague of Rep. Tommy Benton, the fine Southern gentleman, who is calling for caning and executing peaceful marijuana consumers and marijuana business people.
Hey Georgia folks….what other elected officials kids have been busted for pot?
