Now the Great Taste of Worcestershire Sauce in a Shake!

I'm all for some government intervention when the situation warrants it, but shouldn't the market be able to take care of something like this?
Fort's bill, which was co-signed by several other Democrats and at least one Republican in Georgia's GOP-controlled Senate, bans the sale of any "marijuana or hemp flavored candy" in the state and calls for a penalty of up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine for the second offense.
Next thing you know I won't be able to buy any tobacco flavored candy, either.

Maybe they can do something about the scourge of "Candy Canes" which taste like schnapps.

5 years in prison and $1,000 is the statutory max for selling up to 225 grams of heroin.

They are levying the same penalty as peddling heroin for selling hemp-flavored candy. A new felony has been created for selling candy. Someone's life will be riuned for selling candy.

Candy that tastes like crap, I'd imagine.
