DC Pot Decriminalization Starts Today

DC Pot Decriminalization Starts Today
(Washington, DC) -- The new DC law that decriminalizes the possession of small amounts of marijuana goes into effect today. This resident is fine with that.
What had been a crime possibly punishable by jail time now rates just a 25-dollar fine for adult violators. A 60-day Congressional review period expired at midnight. Those found with larger amounts of pot can still be arrested and charged with a crime.
