“The only thing I can say about that is no municipal government has the authority to decriminalize anything that the Georgia General Assembly and federal government still say is a crime... State law and federal law will still apply to the citizens within the municipality.”

— Chuck Spahos, the executive director of the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia, speaking to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, pours a bit of cold water about Clarkston's recent proposal to decriminalize marijuana. Clarkston Mayor Ted Terry says the measure — people caught with less than one ounce of marijuana would be punished with a ticket — could come up for discussion in the City Council's public safety committee.
