Council candidate Paul Zukerberg is pledging to quickly decriminalize the possession of marijuana in the District, should he win the April 23, 2013 election for DC City Council-at-large. A majority of the 13 member Council would be needed to pass decriminalization. Paul believes that he can get those 7 votes.
Decriminalization means that possession of marijuana is reduced from a criminal misdemeanor to a civil infraction. Adults caught with marijuana would pay a fine. For juveniles, its parental notification, plus an educational class.
Right now Paul and his supporters are busy collecting the 3,000 signatures necessary to put Paul’s name on the ballot by the January 23 deadline.
