New Marijuana Plan Now in Effect in Houston

As of today, possession of low-level amounts of marijuana will result in what amounts to a slap on the wrist in Houston.

While it’s still too much in my opinion as marijuana should be legal everywhere, it is a step in the right direction.

According to the new Misdemeanor Marijuana Diversion Program, people caught with less than four ounces of marijuana and who qualify will be referred to a four-hour “Cognitive Decision Making” class. Those who don’t qualify include people on bond, in a drug-free zone, unlawfully carrying a weapon or in a correctional facility.

The class has to be attended by the offender within 90 days or they’ll face arrest. Just like taking Defensive Driving after getting a traffic ticket, the whole thing goes away after you complete the class.

Nifty!
