How far will Cincinnati City Council go to decriminalize marijuana?
With City Council apparently in favor of decriminalizing marijuana in Cincinnati, the nine members just have to decide Wednesday morning how far they want to go. After several delays, council is expected to vote on two distinct proposals for allowing possession without a fine or possibility of jail time. Jeff Pastor and Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman have proposed that anyone be allowed to freely possess 100 grams (3.53 ounces) with no age limit. David Mann’s ordinance would limit it to one ounce (28.35 grams) and set a minimum age of 18.
