Drew Edmondson on Drugs
Backs new drug law making possession of drugs a misdeameanor
Edmondson said recent drug law changes by 2 state questions make simple possession of drugs a misdemeanor--even a 2nd or 3rd offense. "So people's whose offense that is the simple possession of marijuana are not going to be prison eligible,"
he said. "Now possession with intent or actual distribution--that's another matter. It's the DA's discretion as to whether to file that as a felony." Edmondson said such measures will eventually help reduce the prison population.
