DeKalb reduces fines for people found in possession of small amounts of pot
DeKALB – The DeKalb City Council has reduced the fine for people found in possession of small amounts of marijuana in the city.
Starting Jan. 24, if a person is caught with 2.5 grams – less than one-tenth of an ounce – or less of marijuana, they can choose to “mail-in” a $350 fine. If a person decides to go to court and is found guilty, they would be fined $750, plus court fees.
The City Council approved the measure, 7-0, at their Monday night meeting. Because they waived a second reading, the vote was final action. Sixth Ward Alderman Dave Baker was not present and did not vote.
