With the passage of Senate Bill 57 in Ohio, some local governments are re-evaluating how they handle marijuana possession charges. With hemp now legalized, the City of Columbus city attorney announced they won't be prosecuting misdemeanor marijuana possession charges and are dismissing any current charges of the type. Lima officials say that's not the case here. They'll continue enforcing and prosecuting for those charges, but on a case-by-case basis. It's difficult now because drugs containing 3 percent or lower of THC are classified as hemp. Everything with a higher concentration is marijuana.
