Reducing Pot Penalties

(WLOS-TV) — Lawmakers in Raleigh have taken up a bill to reduce penalties for possession of marijuana.  The bill passed its first reading and has been sent to committee for further review. The measure would reduce the current penalties for possessing an ounce or less of marijuana from a class 3 misdemeanor  punishable by up to a $1000 in fines and a suspended sentence to a civil infraction similar to a traffic ticket.
