Oklahoma City Potentially Changing Possession of Marijuana Ordinances

This evening a public hearing will be held to discuss changing Oklahoma City’s possession of marijuana ordinances.

Police say they treat marijuana possession as a “Top-line” offense that results in more than 600 arrests each year.

Under current ordinances, individuals caught with marijuana are arrested and taken to jail, facing a fine up to $1200 and six months in prison.

Oklahoma City Police Chief, Bill Citty, proposed changing the ordinance to a $400 citation instead as a way to save taxpayers dollars and utilize police efforts more effectively.
