New York City Council Approves Bill to Halt Marijuana Testing of Probationers

117

A City Council committee in New York on Monday unanimously approved a bill that would stop tests for marijuana from being conducted on people on probation. The decision was made following Public Safety Committee Chair Donovan Richards proposing the bill back on February 19. Since then, it has moved swiftly through the legislative process,  according to the New York Daily News. “This bill will close one trap door that trips people up,” Richards said to the paper Monday.
