KATZ: CAMARA BILL HELPS EFFICIENCY

A statement by Assemblyman Steve Katz (R,C,I-Yorktown)

This bill works to close loopholes in the Marijuana Reform Act of 1977 and seeks to reduce the costs associated with marijuana violations on our justice system. Rather than requiring excessive time and effort by our police force to deal with a small amount of marijuana, violators will be issued a ticket for a court date, which law enforcement has indicated will bring clarity to the current policy and make enforcement easier. While this bill does not change much of our current law, it is my hope that this bill will promote a broader discussion of our state’s policies.
