Maryland Senate Votes To Decriminalize Marijuana

Post by baffled »

It'll be interesting to see how the feds react as states continue (hopefully) to decriminalize or legalize. ... 81881.html
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.
