A Senate committee on Wednesday tightened a bill that deals with penalties for possession of marijuana-infused products.
House Bill 197 originally created a tiered penalty system for possession of small amounts of marijuana or marijuana-infused products.
The penalty system applied to possession of marijuana in plant form of less than 3 ounces and marijuana-infused products less than 8 ounces.
However, the Senate Judiciary Committee last week amended the bill to only apply to marijuana-infused products. It further amended the bill Wednesday to set the misdemeanor cutoff for possession of marijuana-derived products like extracts to 3 grams of such a substance. This is consistent with existing law for liquid forms of drugs.
