It seems pretty inevitable that recreational use of marijuana is going to be legal on a national basis sooner rather than later. It looks like one major college city took a huge step forward on Tuesday when State College, Pennsylvania, home of Penn State, voted to decriminalize the drug.
The ordinance changes the penalty of possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana to a non-traffic citation and fine of about $250.
Citizens in the city can also now be fined $350 for smoking marijuana in public.
“Penn State needs to get on the side of the students… We can take action and we should take action,” councilman Evan Myers told Onward State.
Baby steps, people, baby steps.
