Massachusetts

Evelyn Moakley Bridge, Boston, MA

Under the state’s Sensible Marijuana Policy Initiative, decriminalized amounts of the drug less than one ounce and replaced a criminal charge with a $100 fine. The initiative was supported by prominent civic, business and religious leaders and 72 percent of the population. Since it became law, some localities have increased the punishment for being caught smoking in public.
