As of Monday, it will no longer be illegal to be found in possession of small amounts of marijuana.

According to ABC 6, last June the RI Governor Lincoln Chafee made it just a $150 fine to be caught with one ounce of marijuana. The fine will reportedly be issued in the form of a ticket. You pay the fine, and you’re all set. No more criminal penalties.

However if a minor is caught with it, the parents will be notified. The minor will then have to take a drug and alcohol education course, and then pay the $150 fine.
