Virginia Moving Closer To Decriminalizing Simple Possession Of Pot
Virginia is moving toward decriminalizing simple possession of marijuana. The State House on Monday passed a bill with bipartisan support. The State Senate is expected to pass its own version shortly. Governor Ralph Northam has indicated he will support the measure. If passed, the legislation would scrap criminal charges for possessing marijuana and replace them with small fines. A measure to legalize pot in the Commonwealth failed earlier this year.
