By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Utah officials on Tuesday filed court papers asking the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the state's ban on gay marriage. If the court agrees to hear Utah's case, it could lead to a ruling of national scope on the legality of gay marriage bans.

Albuquerque could scrap jail time for small amounts of pot

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 05:06
By Joseph Kolb ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (Reuters) - Albuquerque in New Mexico may eliminate jail time for offenders caught with small amounts of marijuana after a city councillor proposed giving only small fines to those caught with less than an ounce of pot. City Councilor Rey Garduno says the legislation he introduced at a meeting late on Monday could save the state's biggest city as much as $5 million a year in court and jail costs. Under his plan, individuals possessing less than an ounce of marijuana would receive a $25 fine, as opposed to the current statute of 15 days in jail and a $50 fine. "We're treating people as criminals when alcohol and even tobacco may even be worse." Garduno's proposal for Albuquerque comes amid a growing movement of pro-pot advocacy across the country.
