Oct 1 - Gov. Schwarzenegger Signs Marijuana Infraction Measure!

Yesterday outgoing California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Senate Bill 1449 — which reduces adult marijuana possession charges from a criminal misdemeanor to a civil infraction. NORML would like to thank the 2,500+ of you who took the time to write the Governor via NORML’s ‘Take Action Center’ over the past week, and the many more who called the Governor’s office directly in support of this historic measure.

Senate Bill 1449 amends the California Health and Safety Code so that the adult possession of up to 28.5 grams of marijuana is classified as an infraction, punishable by no more than a $100 fine — no court appearance, no court costs, and no criminal record.

Passage of this bill will save the state millions of dollars in court costs by keeping minor marijuana offenders out of court. The number of misdemeanor pot arrests has surged in recent years, reaching 61,388 in 2008.

The new law, which takes effect on Jan 1, 2011, will have an effect even if Californians vote to legalize marijuana by passing Prop 19. Proposition 19 leaves misdemeanor possession penalties in place for public use and smoking in the presence of children; under SB 1449, these offenses would be simple infractions.

“Gov. Schwarzenegger deserves credit for sparing the state’s taxpayers the cost of prosecuting minor pot offenders,” said California NORML director Dale Gieringer, “Californians increasingly recognize that the war on marijuana is a waste of law enforcement resources.”

Those gun laws keep citizens unarmed while the gang bangers roam free with all the fire power in the world. I'll just stick to Seattle's way. No sweat from cops if thats all you have is pot and not being an idiot with it.

Yea i line in CT and the laws here f**king suck. only reason i havent been arrested for bud so far is cause the cops in my city at least are pretty cool about it. theve never checked me and my papers and s**t are always legit. but at times my car smells like pot. i had a brake light out last weekend and an officer came up to me and just told me to change it before an a**hole cuffs me for a joint lol..

THIS IS THE FIRST AND ONLY TIME I'LL SAY THIS.

This was NOT about the money in the sense that the government would make more. This saves them millions of dollars because ppl that are caught won't have to go to court. It'll be like a speeding ticket. They already had the $100 fine, it just won't be a misdemeanor anymore.

First time ever I'm giving props to Arnold or the gov't at that.
