hawaii marijuana senate bill 472 cannabis decriminalizationThe Hawaii House of Representatives will soon vote on legislation that downgrades the penalty for possession of up to 20 grams of marijuana to a civil violation punishable by a $100 fine.

The Senate has already passed its own version of this bill. Should the House approve S.B. 472, HD 1, a conference committee will be appointed to work out differences in the legislation before passing a final version on to Gov. Neil Abercrombie.

If you are a Hawaii resident, let your representative know that possessing a substance that is safer than alcohol doesn’t warrant a criminal record and possible jail time.
