Pot penalty shrinks in Sturgeon Bay

The Sturgeon Bay city council voted Tuesday to eliminate a fine for possession of marijuana on private property and to make penalties for possession on public property the same as those for open intoxicants.

Council member Seth Wiederanders has been a proponent of decriminalizing marijuana possession since being elected.


Sturgeon Bay voters narrowly approved an advisory referendum in April supporting recreational use of marijuana. The vote to approve medicinal use was passed overwhelmingly.

Gary Nault was the only council member to vote against the resolution.

 

For the reductions to become effective a majority of city council members at  two consecutive meetings must now approve the changes.
