Reactions to Connecticut's New Marijuana Decriminalization Laws
The state's new pot law will decriminalize the possession of small amounts of weed. Previously the possession of any amount of marijuana was a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine. Now possession of less than half an ounce of weed is punishable by a fine of $150 and a driver's license suspension for 60 days for those under 21 years of age.
