ATLANTA - Mayor Kasim Reed announced Wednesday morning that he signed the city council ordinance decriminalizing marijuana.
He made the announcement on the Ryan Cameron show saying he signed the ordinance at 6:24 p.m. yesterday. Reed said they had a signing ceremony planned to include the politicians who played a roll in the legislation.
Reed's communications director also tweeted that the mayor endorsed mayoral candidate Keisha Lance Bottoms.
Wednesday morning began with a tweet from the official Atlanta City Council twitter account saying that the mayor vetoed the ordinance.
They later recalled that tweet saying it was a mistake. According to Atlanta City Council Communications employee Tony Gomez, "Apparently our new over-zealous social media person tweeted the wrong thing."
