My home state of Connecticut has passed legislation to decriminalize possesion of marijuana.
Less than a half ounce used to be a misdemeanor charge, but now it will simply be a $150 fine and go up with each possession.
Personally, it doesn't matter to me, never touched the stuff, and I don't see how having a joint is different than having a couple beers.
Once Gov. Malloy signs the bill (and he will) it shall be law.
Smoke em if ya got em.
