Editorial: Reduce N.J. marijuana possession penalities to fit the crime
The proposal to eliminate potential jail time and decrease fines for those caught with small amounts of marijuana is long overdue and a welcomed dose of common sense from Trenton legislators.

There should be no penalties at all for using a harmless plant!

Been there, done that. Arrested @ 18 for possession of a seed & a stem they found under my seat.
That cost me $1700 in fines (not to include my lawyer cost) 6mo or probation and good ol' NJ surcharges.
Keep arresting these "drug offenders" and lock em up and have US tax payers pay $30k a year to support an inmate in prison all over a marijuana charge.
Makes me sick.

I think being in possession of less than 1/4 lb should be only a citation/fine no matter how many times you are caught.
