The Kentucky General Assembly passed and the Governor signed into law, the Criminal Code Reform legislation, HB 463. The new law changes marijuana possession from a class A misdemeanor to a Class B. It further reduces the jail time a person can be sentenced to under a Class B misdemeanor from 90 days to 45 days. The Senate changed the bill further by adding more exemptions to a rule that limits when a police officer can make an arrest. Under certain conditions, officers will have to issue a citation rather than make an arrest.
The bill requires officers to issue a simple citation when they witness the commission of a misdemeanor except in cases involving violence in which the defendant poses a risk of danger to himself or others, weapons possession, sexual abuse or failing to comply with an officer's instructions.
As reported in the blog, 'Marion County Line', "Possession of marijuana will remain a misdemeanor but police will no longer arrest people for misdemeanors unless they also have a weapon, are physically threatening, driving drunk, or having sex."

Why would the police arrest you for having sex?

I'm guessing that part refers to misdemeanors relating to sexual assault :confused: or it could be something sillier, who knows

edit: says right there above, sexual abuse. they just worded it dumbly in the blog

ohh having sex in a car? that makes sense, but if that's what they meant, then they need to rethink their wording.

Either way.. this new wave of relaxing laws on MJ should be adopted federally..

the only thing not awesome about my states are the new wave of 'lets ban sex, porn, sex acts, strip clubs, or anything indecent'...

i have this theory the anti-sex brigade will be voted out next election.
