CL council kills pot ordinance – for now
CRYSTAL LAKE – The City Council on Tuesday killed a measure that would have decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana with an understanding that the issue will be revisited under a new police chief.
A change to the city’s ordinance regarding marijuana possession was recommended by Police Chief Dave Linder, who will retire at the end of the month. City Council members wanted to wait until James Black takes charge of the department early next year and to give newly-inducted council member Cameron Hubbard, who was seated Tuesday, time to digest the proposal.
Under the proposed ordinance, police officers could issue tickets for small amounts of marijuana rather than make misdemeanor arrests. The maximum allowable amount was up for debate between 15 and 30 grams.
