DeKalb considering lower marijuana fine
DeKALB – The DeKalb City Council could be relaxing how much people have to pay if they are caught with small amounts of marijuana in the city.
A proposal before the City Council would drop the minimum fine for people caught with 2.5 grams or less of marijuana from $750 to $350 if they choose to “mail-in” their violation.
The proposal is being touted as a way to reduce demand on DeKalb police and to encourage “more efficient use” of the legal system. Currently, people caught with small amounts of marijuana face a fine of $750 to $1,000 have the choice to mail-in their violation or go to court. If the defendant goes to court, they have to pay an additional $360 in court costs.
