Rumble Lacking the votes to pass an ordinance decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana as an emergency vote, the Cincinnati City Council held a second reading of the proposal Wednesday to move it to a vote at a special session Friday afternoon. The proposal, brought by Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman and Councilman Jeff Pastor, would eliminate jail and fines for anyone found possessing 100 grams or less of marijuana in Cincinnati.
