Atlanta Mayor Signs Pot Decrim Bill Into Law
A bill decriminalizing marijuana in Atlanta was signed into law today. And then it wasn’t. And then it was. Thanks to a bizarre series of tweets, the people of Atlanta were left wondering whether mayor Kasim Reed had actually signed the marijuana ordinance. But now, we have confirmation: the Atlanta mayor signed a marijuana decrim bill into law.
Just over a week ago, on October 2, the Atlanta City Council held a vote on a city ordinance that would significantly lower the penalties for anyone caught with cannabis.
The city council unanimously passed the ordinance, sending it to the desk of mayor Kasim Reed. A proponent of the new law, which had overwhelming public support, Reed was expected to sign the bill without hesitation.
But at 6:06 a.m. Wednesday morning, the verified Twitter account of the Atlanta City Council sent out a tweet saying that Reed had instead vetoed the bill.
The early-morning tweet, which has since been deleted, read, “We received an email overnight that the Mayor VETOED our marijuana legislation for less than one ounce.”

How A 12-Year-Old Girl Could Help End Pot Prohibition
Is it true that a 12-year-old girl could help end pot prohibition? According to the latest reports, the answer is yes. The girl in question is Alexis Bortell, and up until recently, she had been suffering daily seizures. But now, because of her life-saving medication, she finds herself trapped in Colorado.
Twelve-year-old Alexis Bortell is an eloquent and precocious sixth grader living in Colorado. In addition to her school work and social life, she enjoys all of the activities that are typical of preteen girls: authoring a book, going on speaking tours and challenging the federal government.
Born in Texas, Bortell has a debilitating form of epilepsy that caused her to suffer daily seizures.
The medicine that her doctors had prescribed came with awful side effects that, according to Bortell, were worse than the actual disease. The maximum time that Bortell could be seizure-free was a grand total of three days. Her education suffered because of frequently missed classes. She and her parents were getting desperate. Her doctors were at a loss. They even suggested an “experimental lobotomy” to achieve just the chance of some relief.
