Cleveland City Council is considering an ordinance that would remove fines and prohibit jail time for possession of marijuana offenses.
The proposed ordinance wouldn’t decriminalize marijuana in Cleveland. And state laws against possession still exist.
Under the proposal, marijuana possession would still be a criminal charge in Cleveland. Up to 100 grams would be a minor misdemeanor, between 100 and 200 grams a 4th degree misdemeanor. All fines and court costs would be suspended.
