Pennsylvania: Measure Pending to Reduce Marijuana Possession Penalties


Legislation is pending to reduce minor marijuana possession penalties and members of the House Transportation Committee are scheduled to vote on HB 928 TOMORROW.

Under current law, possession of up to 30 grams is third-degree misdemeanor that carries up to 30 days in jail, a $500 fine and a driver’s license suspension if convicted by a plea or trial.

House Bill 928 amends state law so that first and second marijuana possession offenses (up to 30 grams) are reduced from misdemeanor offenses to a summary offense, punishable by a fine only.

Thanks for all you do,
