Here is NORML’s weekly update on pending state legislation with helpful links to action alerts.
A separate ordinance passed by the city clears the criminal records of those convicted of low-level marijuana possession offenses. It is estimated that some 10,000 residents will be granted blanket pardons under this action.
The measure legalizes the possession of up to 3/4 of an ounce of marijuana by those age 21 or older. It also allows for adults to home cultivate up to three mature marijuana pants and/or to possess up to five grams of hashish, and up to 300mg of cannabis-infused products.
Voters in three Ohio municipalities on Election Day approved local ballot measures depenalizing minor marijuana possession offenses.
Republican Gov. Phil Scott publicly announced at a news conference that he intends to sign legislation into law legalizing the use and cultivation of personal use quantities of marijuana by adults. I know there are diverse opinions … as to whether we should move forward,” he said. “But I still firmly believe that what you do in your own home should be your business, as long as it doesn’t affect someone else.”
