HATTIESBURG AMERICAN – Recreational pot use, licenses for head shops: Hattiesburg weighs changes
The Hattiesburg City Council is considering two drug-related ordinances — one that would reduce penalties for people possessing recreational amounts of marijuana, another that would put some restrictions on businesses that sell drug paraphernalia.
It looks like Hattiesburg City Council will vote as soon as June 4 on Ward 2 Council member Deborah Delgado’s proposed ordinance to set up a minor fine for possession of small amounts of marijuana. A question remains, though, if the proposed ordinance would even be legal if it conflicts with state law.
During a work session at Monday’s City Council meeting, Delgado briefly went over her proposal.
“It is a proposed ordinance making it illegal to possess 30 grams or less of marijuana within the city of Hattiesburg — No. 1,” she said. “No. 2 — it is prescribed the maximum penalty (for such possession) shall be imposed by the municipal court, and No. 3 — declare that the penalty imposed shall not include any term of imprisonment.”
