The city of Cleveland has passed an ordinance to decriminalize the low-level possession of marijuana. The ordinance was approved during Monday’s council meeting.

The ordinance eliminates fines and jail time for possession of up to 200 grams, or just over 7 ounces, of marijuana. While marijuana is still illegal in Ohio, outside of medical reasons, the ordinance would also mean minor misdemeanor convictions would not carry a criminal record.
