A resolution that would declare marijuana offenses the lowest law enforcement priority in the city of Charlottesville has been scheduled for an up-or-down vote at the next City Council meeting, according to city officials.
Jordan McNeish, an activist who led a weeks-long push to get councilors to take up the resolution, said three of five councilors have told him they plan to support it.
“I think it’s huge,” said McNeish, a 23-year-old city resident. “…What it would really do is — as well as take a public stand — drive home the fact that the Charlottesville government does not wish to pursue people for possession of marijuana as a primary charge.”
