Georgia State Legislature Subcommittee Recommends 'Do Not Pass' on Proposed Legislation to Ban TASER(TM) Devices

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TASER International, Inc. , a market leader in advanced non-lethal devices, today lauded the action by the Georgia State Public Safety Subcommittee which yesterday recommended a "do not pass" for two pieces of proposed legislation (House Bill 29 and House Resolution 6) which would have banned TASER devices in the state of Georgia for law enforcement. The Public Safety Committee followed the "do not pass" recommendation and will refer this topic to a study committee to gather further information. It is anticipated that no further action will be taken on this legislation for the remainder of the year.

"This is a great victory for the law enforcement community and for TASER International. We are very heartened and grateful for the law enforcement leadership that turned out to show strong support of TASER technology," said Tom Smith, President and co-founder of TASER International. "This recommendation represents further affirmation of the growing support enjoyed by our lifesaving technology. We believe that TASER technology will continue to save lives every day and reduce injuries to both officers and suspects in the great State of Georgia. We are hopeful that when presented with similar facts and support from the core users of our technology, that only thoughtful, productive legislation will move forward," concluded Mr. Smith.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
