Pot Decriminalization Bill on Rauner's Desk

It’s just a little pot…..Legislation to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana in Illinois is on its way to Gov. Bruce Rauner's desk. The House approved the measure Wednesday on a 64-50 vote. It had previously passed the Senate. The bill would impose fines between $100 and $200 for possession of 10 grams or less of marijuana but no jail time. Rauner vetoed a bill last year that had lower fines and made possession of up to 15 grams a civil offense. Rauner recommended the higher fines and lower threshold.
