Gwinnett County Police Not Charging Marijuana Possession Cases

Because the Gwinnett Solicitor’s Office announced that the will not now prosecute marijuana possession cases because current Georgia testing can not differentiate between legal hemp and illegal marijuana, the Gwinnett County Police announced on Monday August 12th that they will not charge citizens for possession of marijuana.This is likely temporary until such time as a testing procedure is set up to distinguish between low THC hemp and higher THC marijuana. No word yet from the cities within the county as to whether they will follow suit. Cities are always hesitant to do anything that could potentially reduce revenue derived from criminal fines.
