The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday gave a favorable report to a bill that would decrease the criminal penalties for marijuana possession.
Senate Bill 251, sponsored by Sen. Dick Brewbaker, R-Montgomery, would reclassify the possession of 1 ounce of less of marijuana as a fine-only offense.
It would also reclassify the possession of more than 1 ounce but less than 2 ounces as a Class-D felony. It would reclassify the possession of more than 2 ounces as a Class-C felony.
