Marijuana Reform in Rhode Island Could Be Possible
People in Rhode Island are on the verge of permitting and possibly make marijuana
legal, based on marijuana
Policy Projectís public survey known as Public Policy Polling survey. The survey found almost 65% aid the decriminalization and almost half of the voters aid the legalization.
The survey occurs as the legislature of Rhode Island contemplates on a couple of bills, Senate Bill 2253 and House Bill 7092, which would lessen the charge for possession of not more than an ounce of marijuana
with $150 penalty. Under the existing law, a person seen with marijuana
will be fined $500 and an imprisonment of 1 year.
Decriminalization was supported all over the political field, with 60% votes from independents, 64% from Republicans, and 73% from Democrats supporting the approach. Aside from the political spectrum, the survey gave cross-tabs to the public. The least group who voted were ages 65 and over (58% of them were in favor of decriminalization).
According to Robert Capecchi, the legislative analyst of marijuana
Policy Project, the survey shows the people obviously know that marijuana
prevention is a failed approach and are all set for a change. Rhode Islanders understand the necessity for rational policy reform for marijuana
