Now why can't Illinois have something good on the ballot like this? haha!!

Massachusetts voters eased marijuana laws and turned down a chance to repeal the state income tax Tuesday as ballot measures across the nation addressed a host of contentious issues ranging from gay marriage to abortion.

Henceforth, people caught in Massachusetts with an ounce or less of pot will no longer face criminal penalties. Instead, they'll forfeit the marijuana and pay a $100 civil fine. The defeated tax item would have deprived the state of an estimated 40 percent of its tax revenues and, according to opponents, would have forced a drastic cutback of needed programs and services.

I believe they call it decriminalization. Denver and or CO has a similar law which passed within the last couple of years. It would be nice to have that here.
I say reserve the jail spaces for violent offenders.
