DC close to decriminalizing marijuana possession
News

WASHINGTON (AP) - The District of Columbia is on the fast track toward decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana.

The D.C. Council is poised to approve a bill that would make possession of less than 1 ounce of pot a civil offense, punishable by a fine as low as $25.

Democratic Mayor Vincent Gray says he supports it. He could sign the bill as early as January.
