There are some in Georgia who feel that marijuana should just be legalized due to the harmful effects and deaths this synthetic weed has caused. In 2010, there were 2,906 calls and 10 users that were admitted into the hospital in the critical care units and in 2011, it increased to 6,959 calls and up to 45 admissions into the hospital. Georgia Lawmakers passed the SB370 Chase's Law in 2010 making it a felony to sell and manufacture synthetic marijuana.
