This Just In: Mayor Reed signs Atlanta's marijuana legislation!
ATLANTA - Mayor Kasim Reed has approved Atlanta's bill to ease marijuana penalties.
Reed shared a photo of himself signing the legislation into law on Twitter and Facebook this morning.... "Pleased to sign the marijuana legislation last night at 6:24 p.m.," Reed said. "Thanks to Kwanza Hall and Keisha Bottoms for all their hard work on this. Mayor Reed announced he had approved the legislation after a brief Twitter dispute early Wednesday morning. It started shortly after 5 a.m. with an Atlanta City Council tweet stating they had received an email that the mayor had vetoed the marijuana bill. Then, about 45 minutes later, Atlanta City Council "recalled" the tweet and said the mayor did not veto the marijuana legislation. #atlanta #mayor #marijuana #legislation #weedlaws #atlantapolitics
