How Atlanta Rappers Like 2 Chainz Reacted To City’s Marijuana Decrim

In what will surely be remembered as a landmark decision in marijuana legal reform, Atlanta’s city council unanimously voted to decriminalize marijuana.

This will amend local law so that those charged with marijuana possession up to 1 oz. will no longer face the threat of jail time. Instead they will receive a $75 fine and no more. Previously, those caught with marijuana possession in Atlanta could receive up to six months of jail time and a maximum fine of $1,000.

Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed, formerly a critic of marijuana, stated publicly he will sign this addendum into law.

Many Atlanta residents celebrated the city council’s decision, chief among them Atlanta rappers 2 Chainz, Big Boi, and Killer Mike. They took to social media, praising local politicians who pushed this legislation through. “Mannnn this will save so many young people from bullsh*t charges that later haunt them,” 2 Chainz wrote on Instagram. Killer Mike posted an Instagram video, stating, “Bravo, Atlanta City Council.” Meanwhile Big Boi posted the news with the simple caption of “ATLiens UP.”
