Council Passes Pro-Marijuana Resolution

Last night, City Council passed a resolution memorializing the General Assembly to decriminalize marijuana, Lisa Provence writes in The Hook. The resolution was originally also to instruct the Charlottesville Police not to enforce the state law prohibiting possession, but that bit was stricken, leaving it only as a comparatively toothless request to the legislature. It passed on a 3–2 vote, with Mayor Satyendra Huja and Kathy Galvin opposing it.
