Who’d’ve thunk Kemp’s hemp law would lead to much of Georgia radically reforming marijuana enforcement. Looking at the recent news it’s time to start seriously thinking full-scale legalization as nearly 1/3 of Georgia will have laxer weed laws. Dekalb County today became the third metro county in a week to say they will no longer
Let me start by pointing out that quick decisions after an emotional rarely, if ever, lead to good outcomes. And let’s be honest, a non-insubstantial amount of my our scooter outrage is good-ole-fashioned crotchetiness. Weird how this one particular comment just automatically came hyperlinked in my post.

I suppose it’s good news that Atlanta is considered alongside such great cities as London, Beijing, Fez and Ljubljana. Anyway, the study was done to make climate change data more relatable and offered a “best case scenario”. The “best
Steve Henson will not seek reelection to the legislature next year. As Jim Galloway noted, his retirement means the Senate Democrats could be without a white male in 2020. So why the retirement? Henson says he’s old, needs to focus on “real” work and wants all his focus to be on expanding the caucus not
So I guess it’s going to be a bunch of Democratic mayors running to challenge Senator Perdue in 2020. Clarkston Mayor Ted Terry announced he’s running to challenge Perdue. Meanwhile Perdue has $2 million for next year’s race and former Columbus mayor Teresa Tomlinson, the other declared Democratic hopeful, raised $500,000.
At a Carter Center event in Virginia, Former President Jimmy Carter questioned the legitimacy of President Trump’s election. The most interesting part about this is how long it’s taken Trump to respond with a semi-coherent insult via Twitter.
From the AJC For the past 10 months, electric scooter riders have been allowed to flout the city of Atlanta’s code by riding on sidewalks and in other areas designated for pedestrians.
