Manhattan DA Discontinues Prosecuting for Marijuana Smoking, Possession
Authored by Derek
Well well well. I would've never thought that Manhattan would be the next place to discontinue arresting people for marijuana smoking, and possession. Then again, other states have been decriminalizing so I'm not sure why I am so surprised about this effort being made. They will still make arrests if caught selling marijuana, but from what it sounds like you won't be arrested if you are smoking a joint walking down the road. Then again I don't think people really walk down the road in Manhattan. I guess they have sidewalks and taxi cabs.
