Barometer: Decriminalize small amounts of marijuana?


4135437745_ae1072328f_bFor this week’s Barometer, we want to know if you think Triad cities should move to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana. Several cities — not just states— around the country have taken some sort of action along these lines.

Maybe it would involve instructing the police to de-prioritize such charges, or a resolution encouraging the General Assembly to change state law, or removing certain sections of the city codes. Regardless of the specific approach, do you think the Triad cities should explore the possibilities? Vote and then tell us why in the comments.

    There is nothing inherently criminal about drug use of any kind.

    I’m going to have to agree with Jared, above. The negative consequences of the continued adherence to prohibition policies has caused more harm to the United states and her people than any amount of drug use ever could. I personally have lived through and covered the decriminalization of cannabis is Colorado and California. It makes sense fiscally, socially, and for law enforcement themselves.
