Clemens' bill on cannabis possession halted

Jeff Clemens wanted to decriminalize possession of one ounce or less of cannabis — described as a “personal use quantity — It would be a civil violation, rather than a misdemeanor.

The Senate Criminal Justice Committee postponed the bill. Under the proposal, a person over the age of 18 who knowingly possesses an ounce of marijuana or less would be assessed a civil violation of no more than $100--a slap on the wrist.

SB 1662: Cannabis

Cannabis; Providing that possession of a personal use quantity of cannabis or a cannabis accessory by an adult is a civil violation; providing that such possession by a minor is a civil violation; prohibiting state or local penalties or obligations other than specified penalties or obligations concerning possession of personal use quantities of cannabis or cannabis accessories; specifying that certain violations may not be considered probation or parole violations, etc.
Effective Date: 7/1/2017
Last Action: 4/17/2017 Senate - On Committee agenda-- Criminal Justice, 04/17/17, 1:30 pm, 37 Senate Office Building --Temporarily Postponed
Location: In committee/council (CJ)

Like the local heights amendment the people have VOTED their will
AND this was the WHOLE STATE!
Why do the rest of you get off on the control trip of telling
anyone what they can and can not do to their own body? The
War on drugs isn't touching your real (black Op funding) Heroin
problem because Pot is just an easy bust that gets PBSO GRANT $$$!
Economic Development Departments gone wild would/have benefited
in States that allow an adult to make an adult choice! We're not
even talking about eliminating 300 seizures a week in a toddler
- piss off "I know better than you do folk" and Mind your own business!

Perhaps a day in a cage will change your mind and encourage ya'll to
Make the call and check yaselves! Your next if you allow this!

Happy 420 Day! It's International Cannabis Day, perhaps sharing some pot or CBD will take the edge off some of these angry people. LOL See ya at the hookah, peace.

Kill your brain cells and lungs but please don't reproduce. Let it end with you and let's not have children in the ER after getting into the pot cookies.
