Pittsburgh Council Votes To Decriminalize Small Amounts Of Pot

Thread starter #1
The Pittsburgh City Council voted Monday to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana, falling in line with a growing number of municipalities that have taken similar actions in recent years, city officials said. Under the ordinance passed on a vote of 7 to 2, police in Pittsburgh will begin to issue fines of $25 for possessing less than 30 grams of marijuana and $100 for smoking it in a public space instead of citing for misdemeanors. The ordinance is subject to approval by Mayor Bill Peduto (D), who has voiced support.

I am glad to see that at least a few places are starting to see the light and moving in the right direction.

Sounds like to me, that the Pittsburgh council is looking out for its citizens and what is best for the people and not whats best for our corporate masters. :bravo:
