Marion Barry leads push to decriminalize marijuana possession in DC

Posted: Updated:

There's a push to decriminalize marijuana possession in the District.

Some council members are currently drafting a bill.

Ward-8 representative Marion Barry and Tommy Wells of Ward-6 are taking the lead.

It would eliminate criminal penalties for people caught with small amounts of pot or subject offenders to fines.

The legislation is expected to be introduced as early as this summer.

Council Chairman Phil Mendelson doesn't think congress will approve any decriminalization of marijuana bill.
