Since decriminalization took effect in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, police have cited 73 percent fewer people than they arrested for possessing weed during the same time period in the year prior to decriminalization.

On top of the racial disparities and custodial arrests, otherwise law-abiding citizens are getting saddled with an arrest record that might prevent them from obtaining employment, entering the military or getting financial aid.

(Philly.com "Marijuana has been decriminalized for a year in Philly; how's it going?")

It is time for Scranton to get on board with marijuana decriminalization in Pennsylvania.
