Marijuana Decriminalization Bill Introduced in New Mexico

By: New Mexico Medical Marijuana  |   Posted : Feb.12.13  |  In:  Featured News,Medical Marijuana News

A New Mexico State Representative introduced the House Bill 465 last week. Bill 465 would reduce penalties for adults who possess small amounts of marijuana.

The proposed bill reduces the penalty for possession of up to 4 ounces of marijuana to a civil penalty while increasing fines and taking away the potential for jail time for any amount up to 8 ounces of marijuana.

New Mexico’s current laws state that possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana is a petty misdemeanor crime with fines and possible jail time. Whereas, over 1 ounce and up to 8 ounces of marijuana is a misdemeanor crime with large fines and possible jail time of up to one year.
