Only small amounts of drugs are decriminalized, such as less than 1 gram of heroin or MDMA; 2 grams of cocaine or methamphetamine; 12 grams of psilocybin mushrooms; and 40 doses of LSD, oxycodone or methadone.

Criminal penalties for possession of these amounts are replaced with a fine of up to $100, which can be waived if the user is evaluated at Addiction Recovery Centers.


This is actually really impressive and hopefully a policy that will spread elsewhere.

Not sure this is a good idea to happen in the entire world. This will just make things a lot easier for addicts and drug dealers

This is meant to protect people who are addicted. So if they are holding enough for themselves, they will not face criminal charges. If you are dealer, you are still going to prison. This is not to say this won't be abused. It most certainly will be. Just a matter of how badly.
