Working in New Jersey (bill to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana)

Greenies in New Jersey, gather round.  A panel of your General Assembly is set to hear a bill Monday that would decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana, making the offense similar to a parking violation.  The bill, which has 18 sponsors including three Republicans, would punish anyone caught with a half-ounce or less of marijuana with fines instead of arrest.  Currently, marijuana possession is a disorderly persons offense — the equivalent of a misdemeanor — and is punishable by up to six months in jail, $1,000 in fines, and a criminal record that cannot be expunged for five years.
It falls short of legalization, but is still a step in the right direction. Contact your local representatives Garden State Greenies. Push this change through.
