Marijuana-legalization ad plugs money for Arizona schools
The campaign to legalize marijuana unveiled a new ad Thursday touting the potential financial benefits to Arizona public schools.
The ad features a teacher and two parents who said Thursday they support marijuana legalization because the state's education system desperately needs increased funding. The campaign staged a news conference outside of a Tempe charter school, where one of the supporters teaches.
The ad will air on Facebook, Instagram and other digital platforms, said Barrett Marson, spokesman for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol. The campaign is spending "six figures" on the ad, Marson said. He said it could also appear on TV.

1st City in Tennessee Decriminalizes Pot Possession
Nashville is destined to become the first city in Tennessee to eliminate the criminal penalties associated with the possession of marijuana.
On Tuesday, the Metro Council gave final approval for a decriminalization ordinance that was designed to stop those people busted with up to a half-ounce of weed from being carted off to jail. The measure, which advanced in a vote of 35-to-3, would simply give officers with the Metro Nashville Police Department the ability to slap minor pot offenders with a $50 fine or 10 hours of community service rather than entering them into the criminal justice system.
Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, who previously stated that she is “generally supportive” of decriminalization ordinances, told the Tennessean that she plans to sign the measure into law.
