It seems that even though Will Smith doesn’t toke, some Philly folks do, and they might not be in so much trouble now. Read on…
Philadelphia is going to decriminalize small pot busts.
The city’s new district attorney and the state Supreme Court are moving to all but decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use in an effort to unclog Philadelphia’s crowded court dockets.
Under a policy to take effect later this month, prosecutors will charge such cases as summary offenses rather than as misdemeanors. People arrested with up to 30 grams of the drug – slightly more than an ounce – may have to pay a fine but face no risk of a criminal record.
As someone that’s spent some time in Philly (my sister lives there), I am heartened by the news. I only wish I wasn’t ALWAYS carrying 3o.5 grams.
