New Laws on 4/20

It’s 4/20. For those who do not know, 4/20 is the unofficial holiday of pot smokers. I googled the origin and well … who cares. 

If everyone recalls however, last year during the Atlanta Mayoral election, Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall passed legislation to decriminalize marijuana. The legislation made less than an ounce of marijuana a non arrestable offense with a maximum penalty of $75.  

This will be Atlanta’s first 4/20 with this law. It will be interesting to see the difference a year makes on the police staff, the Atlanta jail, and other residual effects this type of policy change brings in.
