Report: Pot possession could be ticketable offense

June 15, 2012 (CHICAGO)

According to the Sun-Times, the mayor said writing a ticket for minor possession of pot would reduce processing time and free up police officers.

Ald. Danny Solis proposed changing the city ordinance that makes pot possession of 15 grams or less a misdemeanor. He wants them to face a fine of $100 to $500 depending on how much a person is caught with.
