DC: Full City Council to Vote on Marijuana Decriminalization Legislation

A coalition of city lawmakers are sponsoring legislation, B20-0409 : The Simple Possession of Small Quantities of Marijuana Decriminalization Amendment Act of 2013, to significantly reduce marijuana penalties within the District of Columbia. Members of the Committee on Public Safety on January 15 voted unanimously in favor of this legislation. The full City Council is expected to vote on this legislation during its February 4th meeting which begins at 10:00am in Room 500 of the John A. Wilson Building.
Under present law, possession of any amount of marijuana is a criminal misdemeanor, punishable by up to 6 months incarceration and a maximum fine of $1,000. Passage of this act would eliminate criminal penalties and replace them with a civil fine of $25 for possession and $100 for public consumption — no arrest and no criminal record.
Please take time today to contact your Council member by visiting NORML’s ‘Take Action Center’ and urge him or her to support B20-0409:
NORML will keep you updated as this legislation moves forward.

Democratic at large city council candidates propose outlawing jobs

31 Jan

Nate Fleming, John Settles and other Democrats running for City Council At Large spoke at the historic Sixth and I synagogue on Wednesday January 29, to DC for Democracy and other groups.  The sponsoring groups had billed this as a a “candidate’s forum” but it was really a Democrats only forum with only Democrats invited.  When Libertarians inquired they were told not to come because they were not in “contested primaries” as the Libertarian on the ballot in the April 1 primary are not in contested races – there is only one Libertarian in each race.

The sponsors also did not invite any Green Party people – and in one and only one race the Greens DO have a contested primary.  Their candidates came up on stage and asked the audience to let them speak.

The candidates lamented that there are no Urgent Care Centers in Anacostia – and promised in many cases to slap anyone who opens one up with a 10% income tax and a commuter tax if they don’t live in DC.  They also proposed outlawing taking a job that doesn’t pay what they view as an acceptable amount.  DC has 20% youth unemployment in its poorer Wards.
