Prosecution Of Some Pot Cases Have Relaxed In Puerto Rico


Puerto Rico – First-time marijuana offenders caught using the substance for personal use are receiving more relaxed prosecution in certain cases.

An executive order was signed by Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla recently stating that persons found with six grams of marijuana or less could face only a fine, community service or rehabilitation. These decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

Legislators in the U.S. territory are now holding public hearings on the issue.

It has also been stated that smoking marijuana for medicinal purposes is still illegal in Puerto Rico, and that the government only allows patients to use cannabis derivatives that can be inhaled or used orally, such as oils and pills.

Puerto Rico is currently in a decade-long economic slump and is facing liquidity crunches. The Governor also stated that the Department of Corrections spent nearly $2.3 million in December alone prosecuting marijuana possession cases. He said that public funds would be better spent elsewhere fighting more severe drug offenses.

    My husband and i got quite ecsattic when Emmanuel could finish up his web research by way of the ideas he made from your web page. It is now and again perplexing to simply continually be freely giving key points which often many people could have been making money from. We really take into account we now have the blog owner to be grateful to because of that. The main explanations you have made, the straightforward website navigation, the friendships you will help to instill it is mostly wonderful, and it is leading our son and our family feel that the situation is thrilling, which is certainly tremendously serious. Thank you for everything!
