The Maryland Senate voted to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana Tuesday.
Under the new bill, anyone caught with up to 10 grams (0.35 ounce) would receive a citation and a $100 fine instead of being charged with a crime, reported News4's Chris Gordon.
The State Senate passed the measure 30-16, with the yes vote extending to some Republicans. Among them: Sen. Nancy Jacobs (R - District 34), whose husband has cancer.
Jacobs noted that if she needed or wanted to buy a small amount of marijuana for her husband, she would want to be able to do that, Gordon reported.
