HOUSTON - Newly elected District Attorney Kim Ogg unveiled her new Misdemeanor Marijuana Diversion program on Thursday.

Quote:
"Although the use of marijuana is illegal in the state of Texas, this is not a crime that is a major threat to public safety, and the district attorney has come up with a solution to spend taxpayers' money responsibly," Boykins' said. "The goal of this program is to ensure that the resources needed for court and jail are being used to effectively increase public safety and acknowledge that those in possession of misdemeanor amounts of marijuana are not stigmatized by criminal records that limit their employment, education and housing opportunities."

Officials said those who are caught with a misdemeanor amount of marijuana and qualify for the program will be offered an opportunity to take a cognitive thinking course, which will cost $150 within a 90-day time frame. It will also offer no jail time and no criminal record of the event.
She's talking about 4 ounces. 4 Fuckin' Ounces! Bless you Ms Ogg.
