Is it good news that Connecticut legislators have decriminalized marijuana? Sure, but the change in the law has caused headaches for Connecticut teenagers and their parents.
As many of the best criminal lawyers in Greenwich, UConn and New Canaan Connecticut know, instead of arresting Connecticut teenagers for Possession of Marijuana and Paraphernalia, they issue violation and infraction tickets to teenagers and adults who possess less than one-half ounce of marijuana or paraphernalia.
Which begs the question…should I plead guilty by mail to my Connecticut marijuana possession ticket under CGS 21a-279a? The cops are telling me it’s “no big deal.”
