Portsmouth Herald satisfied with 'more than enough punishment' for small amounts of pot

In our view, decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana is a no-brainer. Locking someone up for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana is an incredible waste of precious public safety resources that could be much better directed at preventing dangerous crime and locking up hardened criminals. A fine similar to non-felony liquor violations is more than enough punishment.
