Greensboro Marijuana Lawyer
A bill has made it’s way to the mayor’s desk in the nation’s capital, which would effectively decriminalize Marijuana. The new law would make smoking Marijuana equivalent to a parking ticket in DC. It looks like DC’s goal is to eventually Tax and Regulate the Sale of Marijuana per a Greensboro marijuana lawyer.
The new Law makes Possession of Less than an Ounce (28 Grams) of Marijuana a Civil Violation, which would in effect be lower than most parking tickets according to criminal lawyer in Greensboro NC. Proponents of the Law have said that it would be an effective way of cutting law enforcement costs and increase fairness. There are currently more than 5,000 Arrests in DC for Marijuana each year. An ACLU study shows that eight times more African American people are Arrested for Marijuana Possession than other races according to research from a personal injury attorney.
In North Carolina, we are still yet to see efforts to legalize or decriminalize the use of Marijuana. If you or someone you know is stopped for Possession of Marijuana, Smoking Marijuana, or Selling and Delivering Marijuana in Greensboro, High Point, or Asheboro, Contact our Lawyers Today!
