Peg Broadcasting News/WVLT/WTVF Wednesday September 21, 2016

Nashville is now the first city in Tennessee to decrease the penalty for small amounts of marijuana. The Metro City Council on Tuesday voted 35-3 to pass an ordinance that will impose a civil penalty of $50 and possible community service for those caught with less than a half ounce of pot. Supporters say the bill gives Nashville police the option of choosing the lesser penalty on a case-by-case basis. Under state law, people caught with less than a half ounce of weed face a $2.500 fine and a misdemeanor charge punishable by up to a year in jail.

Colonial Pipeline project to reopen line on Wednesday
WVLT Wednesday September 21, 2016

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Colonial Pipeline announced construction on a bypass around a leak site in Shelby County, Alabama is complete. The leak caused a shortage in gas that affected the Southeast.

The bypass segment is 500 feet long. Workers are testing it to ensure its structural integrity. After the tests are complete, the line will restart. Colonial project leaders expect it to open back up Wednesday.

According to Colonial Pipeline, it could take several days for fuel delivery to return to normal.

AAA expects fuel prices to return to normal once deliveries are back on schedule.

Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia were hit hardest by the partial closure of the pipeline. Tennessee and Georgia declared states of emergencies to protect customers from price gouging.

Tennessee's gas price increased by 15 cents from last week due to the shortage of gas. The average is still 7 cents below the national average.
