Weed decriminalized in the great state of Hawaii

by Amanda Push

Marijuana has made yet another leap forward in the fight for cannabis.

This week, America’s own island paradise, Hawaii, was the 26th state to decriminalize the plant, according to Vox. It’s not legalization, but, hey. It’s a step in the right direction.

According to Vox, the law eliminates going to jail as punishment for being caught with up to three grams of Mary Jane, BUT you’d still get a $130 fine. Hawaii’s legislators approved the bill and sent it to Gov. David Ige in May. While the governor didn’t sign it, he also didn’t veto it. SO, on Tuesday, the bill become law and will kick in on January 11, 2020.

“Unfortunately, three grams would be the smallest amount of any state that has decriminalized (or legalized) simple possession of marijuana,” the Marijuana Policy Project, an advocacy group, noted in a statement, according to Vox. “Still, removing criminal penalties and possible jail time for possession of a small amount of cannabis is an improvement.”

Keep going, Hawaii. Keep it going.
