Savannah Alderman Submits Proposal To Reduce Marijuana Fines


Savannah city Alderman Van Johnson has submitted a proposal to Savannah City Council to reduce marijuana fines.

The alderman wants to reduce the penalty for individuals carrying less than 1 ounce of marijuana from the current maximum rate of $1,000 to $150. Johnson also proposes eliminating jail time for those individuals and reducing punishment to a citation within Savannah City limits.

Atlanta already has a similar ordinance.
