We are not in the range for A. curassavica to be commonly found...

I tempted to say Asclepias purpurascens, we are a big south of it's range but possible...

Could be M. gonocarpos, they do have those ridges on the pod, but with the available information would be hesitant to say with certainty.

EnvUnlimited, thanks for the suggestion but Scarlet milkweed seems a bit tropical for north Georgia.
