    Washington, D.C., panel weighs decriminalizing marijuana

    Washington, D.C., panel weighs decriminalizing marijuana

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The District of Columbia will take a step closer toward decriminalizing marijuana on Wednesday with a move that will make smoking a joint in the U.S. capital a violation comparable to a parking ticket.

    With Washington arresting people for pot possession at a higher rate than any state, a city council panel is set to mark up a bill that would reduce penalties for possessing less than an ounce (28 grams) of marijuana to a fine as little as $25.

    The wave of reason and intelligence continues to spread across the USofA.

    The money we (as a country) fighting marijuana is retarded. It really is.

    I wouldn't call it a "wave of reason and intelligence" though. They still are saying that possession of marijuanna is a violation which it shouldn't be. It should be completely legal for whatever the adult age for alcohol purchase is.

    The only thing they have done is lessen the severity of the violation.

    I fully agree - but it's a step in the right direction for sure.

    The Feds will get a first hand look at how the world does not collapse and maybe this'll be the first step towards a change in the federal laws.
