Antigo changes pot penalties

Posted:

Pot penalties will  change in Antigo. Members of the Antigo Common Council have approved a new ordinance,  which calls for fines on people having small amounts of marijuana, rather than criminal prosecution 

Violators caught with 10 grams of pot or less now face a $389 citation. Police will issue $150 dollar fines for having drug paraphernalia 

After a first citation , additional violations send the suspect into the courts system.
