Synopsis As Introduced
Creates a new regulatory offense classification of offense, which is not to be considered a criminal offense and is fine only for the amount specified in the offense. Amends the Cannabis Control Act. Provides that the knowing possession of not more than 30 grams of any substance containing cannabis is a regulatory offense charged by a Uniform Cannabis Ticket with a fine of $100 (rather than a Class C misdemeanor for 2.5 grams or less, a Class B misdemeanor for more than 2.5 grams to 10 grams, and a Class A misdemeanor for more than 10 grams to 30 grams). Amends the Clerks of Courts Act. Provides the same court cost on a Uniform Cannabis Ticket as a minor traffic ticket. Requires the clerk of the court to seek a sealing order from the court for records related to a Uniform Cannabis Ticket upon the final disposition of the case. Provides for distribution of fines collected on a Uniform Cannabis Ticket. Amends various other Acts to make conforming changes.
