HUGE news for #NewOrleans today ‼️ No longer will the police arrest for pot possession within the city limits, council decides. New Orleans police will have even more leeway to issue citations for simple #marijuana possession after the City Council voted 7-0 Thursday (March 17) to enact new standards aimed at reducing the number of arrests for low-level #drug crime. Council member Guidry released a statement: "Our hope with this is that fewer people will be brought to jail and fewer people will have their lives disrupted with this charge." This is a BIG win for the problem of mass incarceration for non-violent #cannabis consumers within our nation. Change is coming to #NOLA! ⚜️🍃🎭📿 #504 #green #politics #decriminalize #legalize #cultivatehappiness #makeadifference
