Councilmember Navarro to Introduce Marijuana Decriminalization Resolution
Montgomery County Councilmember Nancy Navarro, along with Council President Craig Rice and Councilmembers Roger Berliner, Cherri Branson, Marc Elrich, Nancy Floreen and Hans Riemer, plan to introduce a resolution on Tuesday, June 17, declaring the sense of the County Council is that possession of small amounts of marijuana and paraphernalia by adults should be among the County’s lowest law enforcement priorities.
The resolution also calls on Maryland State leaders in Annapolis to decriminalize the possession of marijuana paraphernalia to the same degree that the drug itself is decriminalized.
The resolution will be posted on the Council’s web site on Friday afternoon, June 13. Once posted, the resolution can be found here.
Following the morning portion of the Council’s weekly general session on June 17 at which the resolution will be introduced, Councilmembers will be joined by state legislators and advocates to detail the resolution. The news event will be held at 12 noon at the Council Office Building in Rockville.
