Marijuana Decriminalization Approved In Lancaster

/ WDAC

LANCASTER – By a 6-1 vote, Lancaster City Council voted to decriminalize the possession and use of marijuana. The Red Rose City now joins the cities of Harrisburg and York in adopting an amendment to a city ordinance that now classifies possession of an ounce of marijuana or its usage as a summary offense instead of a misdemeanor. Persons in possession of the drug or paraphernalia will face a $25 fine for the first and second offense with a $50 fine for the third. The fines can be substituted with four hours of community service. Persons using the drug in public will face a $75 fine for the first offense, $100 for the second, and $125 for the third. Those fines can be replaced with eight hours of community service.
