Schwarzenegger Decriminalizes California Marijuana (Mostly)


Today, California Gov. Schwarzenegger signed a bill that will make possession of an ounce or less of marijuana a civil infraction, as opposed to a misdemeanor.

Here are the key points of this bill:

-Don't carry more than an ounce!

-Law goes into effect Jan 1st 2010. Possession is still a misdemeanor until then

-If caught after Jan 1st, you'll still get $100 fine, but a court appearance won't be necessary, and it won't go on your record

-Smoking in public or around a minor will still be a misdemeanor

Looks like we're one step closer to legalization.

Those of you who are excited about this news: Celebrate with caution.

The new law doesn't go into effect until January 1st!

What do U think of this new bill?
