Decriminalization Passes Unanimously in Georgia
Atlanta City Council members voted 15-0 to pass a proposed ordinance to decriminalize marijuana. Under current law, possession of weed within the city limits of Atlanta, Georgia is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and imprisonment for up to six months.
This new ordinance would eliminate prison for possession of less than an ounce and would reduce any potential fine to a maximum of $75.
Shortly after the vote, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed tweeted support for the initiative, which he has eight days to act on or it becomes law automatically. The mayor said he looked forward “to reviewing & signing this legislation.”
The decriminalization measure was sponsored by Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall, who is running for mayor this year.
“Today we stand with every parent of Atlanta who is fearful of or has seen their children’s lives destroyed, or careers ruined because of a racist policy that unjustly incarcerated minorities by more than 90 percent,” Hall said in a press release after the vote.
