Amend or Repeal Georgia Statue title 49 ch.4 Article 9 subsection(a)5 sign now

To have part of Georgia Statue Title 49 ch.4 Article 9 subsection (a) 5 either amended or repealed. The statue states any applicant or recipient is not eligible for assistance under this article if convicted of any felony drug offense under article 2 of ch.13 of title 16"The Georgia Controlled Substances Act" on or after January 1, 1997;
This petition is to enact a bill to the general assembly floor to have enough signatures to consider of passage into law. The statue and law as of now denies applicants or recipients the chance to receive help or support from state welfare agencies.My suggestion would be a 90 day probationary period for people who has been convicted of a drug offense until they secure employment.
Let's reduce this cycle of ostracism and eliminate the stigma that's been placed on people.Everyone deserves a second chance and the basic human necessity of life which is food,clothing, and shelter.
