There is more and more talk in Virginia about decriminalizing marijuana, yet marijuana arrests have increased in the past year, notes the Virginia Mercury. What’s going on?
The Mercury quotes Dave Albo, a former state delegate and Northern Virginia lawyer Virginia who frequently represents clients on marijuana-possession charges: “My unscientific explanation for this dramatic increase is people are just brazen about it now. They just don’t think of it as illegal, so they’re more apt to carry it around in their pocket, more apt to have it in their car and more apt to sit and smoke it with their friends.”
Sounds plausible to me.There are currently no comments highlighted.
