A proposed bill to be considered by Tennessee lawmakers if passed would decriminalize marijuana possession statewide. It will then allow counties to vote on legalization. State Representative Rick Staples introduced House Bill 1610 yesterday. The bill would change Tennessee’s controlled substances laws to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana statewide. It would also authorize counties to hold referendum elections to allow marijuana growing, manufacturing, delivery and retail sales within their boundaries.
