First tickets written under softer Grand Rapids marijuana law

GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- Grand Rapids police are now just issuing tickets to people caught with less than 2.5-ounces of marijuana instead of arresting them.

The first tickets were issued Wednesday when the voter-approved ordinance took effect.  The first one went to a 28-year-old man from the northwest side of Grand Rapids, who was cited around 3 a.m. Wednesday.

A court battle over whether or not the decriminalization of marijuana is legal is still being waged between the city and Kent County Prosecutor William Forsyth.
