Atlanta Forward: Quality of life

Last week, state Rep. Allen Peake, R-Macon, wrote on these pages about the need to approve the restricted and regulated in-state cultivation of marijuana, so low-THC cannabis oil can be readily provided to suffering Georgians with certain medical afflictions. Today, the president of the Georgia Sheriffs Association writes about why the organization is opposed to growing the plant here. Our second column looks at the lack of services in Georgia for citizens, children included, who are battling eating disorders. And a state senator writes about establishing tax-free savings accounts for disabled persons.
