Getting caught with cannabis in Macon-Bibb County just isn’t as big of a deal as it used to be.

Previously, you could pick up a $1,000 fine and serve up to a year in jail. Earlier this year, however, county commissioners voted to reduce the penalty to a $75 ticket for an ounce or less of pot with no possibility of jail time.
