Town Votes to Reduce Weed Possession Charges to Less Than $1
The police chief in Monona, Wisconsin seems like a very chill guy.
“If the community values are, ‘Marijuana is not that serious of an offense’ and they want to have a $1 fine, or no fine, that’s their opinion,” Chief Walter Ostrenga said after the town council voted to scrap all weed possession charges.
Under the new ordinance, possessing marijuana in public or in private spaces is no longer subject to a fine, as long as the person is over 21.
Smoking weed in a private residence is also exempt, although toking in public is still subject to a $200 fine.
After a year and a half of discussion, the Monona City Council considered reducing weed possession fines of $200 to a mere $1.
But then they decided even a dollar was too much.

And what kinds of drugs are at issue here? We are luridly told that “cultivation of genetically selected strains have [sic] led to increase in cannabis harvests. As a result, cannabis cultivation is increasing even in the hilly areas, posing a grave threat to security, according to the report.”

Moderately heavy and mildly hard hitting, the force is strong with this Jedi Kush well into the second hour.
