Select NC counties district attorneys and law enforcement decriminalizing marijuana

NORTH CAROLINA – Medicinal marijuana is still not legal in the state of North Carolina so some district attorneys and law enforcement in select counties are decriminalizing marijuana.

As NC is only one of 13 states left that have not legalized medicinal marijuana some counties are beginning to take matters into their own hands, according to The News & Observer.

District attorneys and law enforcement are both spread pretty thin so they want to save resources for more serious cases. Therefore, some county district attorneys, such as in Orange and Chatham counties, have begun decriminalizing  possession of anything less than 1.5 ounces.

The district attorneys in NC are able to do this as they can legally practice their own discretion in individual cases. However, law enforcement have a little less wiggle room when it comes to charging for possession.
