A bill allowing more patients to use Medical Marijuana easily passed the Georgia House today. The legislation was stripped of major provisions last week after intense debate.

Hillary Clinton campaigned at City Hall today in one final push before Georgia’s presidential primary on Tuesday. Mayor Kasim Reed, an ardent Clinton supporter, introduced her to the crowd.

Mayor Reed said Clinton is the only presidential candidate looking out for African-Americans. He also defended her reputation, saying her career has never been about money.

“I’ve been thinking about Secretary Clinton. Her life has been about helping other people, so I don’t know how anybody has gotten it confused," said Reed.
