Update: Referred to the House Judiciary Committee on May 8.

Update: Members of the House Transportation Committee held a hearing for HB 928 on April 25.

Legislation is pending to reduce minor marijuana possession penalties.

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.

Please contact your elected officials in support of reducing marijuana possession penalties.
