PostSubject: State police ready for Mass. pot law   Wed Dec 31, 2008 2:20 pm

By Jim Taricani
Investigative Reporter
Published: December 30, 2008

This past November, voters in Massachusetts approved a measure making possession of one ounce or less of marijuana a civil offense subject to a $100 fine rather than a crime.

But if any Massachusetts resident plans on taking pot to Rhode Island, the state police will be waiting.

“Anybody that comes from the state of Massachusetts where marijuana was recently (decriminalized), if they’re found to be in possession of any amount of marijuana, they will be arrested here in Rhode Island,“ said Lt. David Neill of the Rhode Island State Police.

Neill said the on-going state and federal war on drugs is hurt by new possession laws like the one in Massachusetts. He also said it’s going to be a problem for many Bay Staters who frequent the bars and clubs in Providence.

“I think you’ll see an increase in the amount of marijuana arrests in the state of Rhode Island, specifically in the city of Providence,“ Neill said. “You have a lot of younger drivers traveling from the state of Massachusetts to the Providence nightclubs.“

In Rhode Island, possessing an ounce or less of marijuana in most cases is a misdemeanor but it can be a felony depending on circumstances.

The new Massachusetts law goes into effect on Friday.

Great. Way to undermine years of effort by LE and policy makers. Evil or Very Mad
