Drug Free Zone in McDonough
NOTE: Andy Welch drafted and ensured passages of the law that allows cities to prosecute these “Businesses”
The city of McDonough no longer allows the sale of drug paraphernalia. Effective 9/7/2012, convenience store, gas stations and similar establishments are prohibited from selling items considered drug paraphernalia. Items such as pipes, screens, clips, rolling papers, testing kits and small spoons must be removed from the stores.
IF stores continue to sell these items penalties ranging from $1,000 fine to $5,000 and six months to five years in jail will be implemented. It is hoped that other counties will adopt similar resolutions.
