Criminal - Decriminalizing Marijuana under 15 grams
A bill that would decriminalize possession of marijuana in small amounts is advancing in the New Jersey Legislature with bipartisan support. The Assembly Judiciary Committee on Monday approved the measure, A-1465, by a 7-0 vote. At present, possession 50 grams or less of marijuana is a disorderly persons offense, punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. The bill would make possession of 15 grams or less of marijuana a civil infraction, with fines of $150 fine for the first offense, $200 for a second and $500 for the third or subsequent one.
