House Approves Bill to Block Marijuana Decriminalization
AP Friday March 24, 2017

The House has voted on a bill that would block any efforts by Tennessee cities to decriminalize the use of marijuana. The bill would nullify laws that Memphis and Nashville have passed that have reduced the penalty for weed in some cases.
The bill was sponsored by Rep. William Lamberth. It passed over the objections of lawmakers in Memphis and Nashville who thought the state should stop interfering with their cities. House Speaker Beth Harwell, of Nashville, voted against the measure.
Nashville and Memphis passed laws that would give police the discretion to allow people caught with a small amount of marijuana to face a civil penalty instead of a misdemeanor charge.
The bill passed 65-28 with one member present who didn't vote.

Warren County 911 dispatchers took a total of 195 calls Tuesday night during and after the severe thunderstorm that toppled trees, knocked down power lines and blew roofs from buildings.
911 Director Chuck Haston said another 70 calls were taken over non-emergency lines. Haston said every department in the city and county responded to some type of emergency. There were numerous reports of live wires down, roofs blown off or damaged, trees on houses or vehicle, and even a childbirth in a vehicle at around midnight. The child is said to be healthy.
. Wednesday morning some traffic lights were still out. Haston said what made it challenging was that the damage was county-wide. As many as seven dispatchers were working at one point during the storm.
