The Wauwatosa Joint Board rejected a proposal that would have invalidated possession of less than 28 grams of marijuana.
In narrowly rejecting the plan, 9-7, council members cited concerns about how the proposal would develop and what impact it would have on the community.
The proposal to amend the THC Act in Wauwatosa originated with former Ald. Matt Stipsch. After deciding not to re-run for election in April, his successor, Andrew Mindell, adopted the idea.
Meindl’s proposal would have reduced the citation to $1 for possession of up to 28 grams of marijuana. His decision to lead the proposal came after a meeting with his constituents, who he said appeared “overwhelmingly” in favor of the change.
Currently, the penalty for possession of marijuana ranges from $100 to $500, depending on the amount of marijuana. Failure to pay a fine or previous offenses may result in arrest.
