Sturgeon Bay council member to propose no fines for marijuana use on private property

An ordinance change that would eliminate some fines for marijuana use is coming before Sturgeon Bay city leaders.  Council member Seth Wiederanders will introduce a proposal to the Community Protection and Services Committee when it meets July 8th.  Wiederanders says his proposal would apply to adults who use marijuana at home or on other private properties.



Wiederanders' proposal would also eliminate fines for adults who have less than an ounce of marijuana if they have contact with police for other offenses.  The current fines for a full ounce or more would remain in effect.  Sturgeon Bay voters approved advisory referendums on the legalization of marijuana for medical and recreational use last April.
