LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE 3)– A city ordinance passed in Louisville on Wednesday, making small amounts of marijuana for personal use one of the lowest priorities for police officers.

The ordinance, passed by the public safety committee, would not change Kentucky law.

It also wouldn’t apply to the distribution or sale of marijuana, DUI, drug violence or possession by someone under the age of 21.

It is intended to eliminate a large amount on unnecessary people going through the criminal justice system.
