I remember when people

I remember when people smoking pot in their cars was one of the many problems with Regency Mall...but that couldn't be true of Augusta Mall. Must be an error, Countyman says it's safe.

stupid waste of taxpayers

stupid waste of taxpayers money. This is our biggest waste of time and energy. legalize it and tax the heck out of it. So many people smoke it but dont want the world to know because its illegal. From Doctors to lawyers to Judges and even police officers. I've tried it. dont see what the big deal was. All it did for me was dry out my mouth and make me sleep. Not something I'd try again but I dont see the problem with it other than we could be helping our tax problem with it and lowering our property taxes.

You'd think they'd be smart

You'd think they'd be smart enough to drive around and smoke, like everyone did back in the 70s.

iLove, why would it matter?

iLove, why would it matter? Employees can leave the mall at very late hours. If a store says open until 9-10, it's not completely out of the question for employees to leave at 11-12 after closing up. The issue here is that yet again, the area is not safe no matter what the time of day.

Unpublished

Exactly mtxbass1. ilove, what about the people robbed at 4:30 in the afternoon in their own car in Chuck E. Cheese parking lot? Maybe a drug deal as others suggested that day on the article, maybe not, no proof. But either way this war on marijuana isn't working. Alcohol, tobacco, and pills, some of the most harmful drugs there are are legal, but something growing in nature that doesn't need any help from man to prepare for recreation, medicine, clothing, food, etc... has people getting themselves into dangerous situations like that, rather than growing and smoking at home, when legally johnny drunk has 5 misdemeanor duis and can go and kill someone or paralyze them and still get a slap on the wrist. But damn these partakers to hell!!!! lol

One of the same posters

One of the same posters earlier said don't use the ATM in Richmond county without an loaded gun. There's no point debating with somebody who is clearly biased against Augusta. The incident at Chuck E Cheese is out of the norm and it didn't happen at the Augusta mall.. People are reaching for straws and bringing up anything they can think of.. The corporate at Apple, Sephora, Williams Sonoma, Pandora, PF Changs, and Bare Escentuals (the only locations in GA outside of metro Atlanta) make sure to locate in low crime areas with disposable income.. If businesses continue to open up then crime isn't a factor.. The corporate at Starbucks definitely don't open locations in most areas of the US.. Guess what?? There's one sitting in front of the Augusta mall.. The Augusta mall, Kroger shopping center, and TJ Maxx shopping center at almost 100% occupancy tell the true story..

The median income of the population surrounding the Augusta mall(5 miles) is around $45k...

Countyman, that website seems to inflate the median income, but it also has Columbia County much higher than Richmond County at 55K. Probably about right.

Glad these arch criminals were taken off the street before they did something crazy, like eat a sack-full of Krystal burgers and pass out laughing at Sat Nite Live..

"The mall is dangerous because two dudes were smoking pot in a car!"

Y'all would crack me up if it weren't so sad that you can't recognize you live in one of the safest and most prosperous times in human history.

yes the mall is dangerous

yes the mall is dangerous because two dudes were smoking pot in a car. They were charged with intent to distribute too. Which means the mall parking lot could become the new 'corner' for dope dealing, which of course would include weapans, hoodlums, etc.

Bottom line: they broke the law and were arrested. Too bad they weren't illegals so they would have gotten away with it so their rights wouldn't be violated!
