Decriminalizing Pot: What Does 25 Grams of Marijuana Look Like?

Written by Laura Nahmias on . Posted in Politics.


Earlier today, Sen. Majority Leader Dean Skelos talked about why he would be more supportive of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s measure to decriminalize holding small amounts of marijuana in public view if the amount considered legal was somewhat lessened.

Skelos said, “It should be a violation — your following the policeman’s order … But being able to walk around with 10 joints in each ear and it only being a violation, that is wrong,” according to Capitol Tonight’s State of Politics.

Cuomo’s proposal would allow for possession of up to 25 grams of the substance to be legal out in the open air.

The question, obviously, is whether or not this is enough marijuana to make 20 joints that could fit in a pair of human ears.
