York Ceo Arrest Case Highlights Flaws In Marijuana Laws, Advocates Say – Evening Sun

Unless the person charged has a doctor’s prescription for proof of the necessary cannabis use, Blair County District Attorney Richard Consiglio wrote to Leach that he would not agree to the request. And while he would not issue a blanket statement that his office would not prosecute people found with marijuana, Lehigh County District Attorney James Martin wrote that he has no problem with people receiving cannabis for legitimate medical purposes. Prosecutors will exercise their prosecutorial discretion and consider such cases on a case-by-case basis, Martin wrote. Seth Williams, district attorney for Philadelphia, stopped prosecuting all possession of marijuana offenses, Leach wrote in a response to Tom Kearney. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter signed a bill decriminalizing possession and use of small amounts of marijuana. In the York County case, the Weslers face three drug charges each including manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, drug, device or cosmetic, which is a felony.
