Group fighting to legalize marijuana in Atlanta

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The fight to legalize marijuana is ramping up in Atlanta.

Organizers with the Georgia Campaign for Reform Access and Education announced a campaign to change Georgia's marijuana law.

Right now, people who carry less than an ounce of marijuana can be punished by up to a year in jail.

Any more than that and you could go to prison for up to 10 years.

People with the campaign want to change that.
