Medicinal Marijuana Decriminalization Vote Tabled

Per The Trentonian:

"A scheduled vote in the New Jersey Assembly on a bill decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana has been postponed.  The measure would decriminalize possession of up to a half ounce of pot — about 35 joints — to make it a civil offense punishable by a fine of $100 to $500. The bill was pulled Thursday so minor amendments could be made. One would defer a portion of the fine to drug education. Another would mandate drug counseling for repeat violators."
