It looks like you will soon be able to possess up to a half of a pound of marijuana in the city of Cincinnati.
Cincinnati City Council started the process Monday to decriminalize marijuana – though Police Chief Eliot Isaac said he had some concerns about the idea, our media partners with the Cincinnati Enquirer said.
During a law committee meeting Monday, Isaac said he would enforce whatever council passed, but was concerned about decriminalizing up to roughly half a pound, as the ordinance calls for.
“I am very sensitive… to how laws sometimes disproportionately affect different communities,” Isaac said in committee. “But a half pound concerns me. I’m not comfortable with any of it, but … I will enforce it.”
