Rally for Decriminalization of Marijuana

Every year on June 2, since 2013, rallies are held in Tbilisi and some other cities of the country to demand decriminalization of marijuana. Under the Georgian law possession of a small amount of marijuana for personal use, without intent to sell, is an administrative offense, punishable with GEL 500 fine; repeated offense carries criminal punishment with up to one year imprisonment. Former UNM MP Goga Khachidze has initiated a bill, which, if approved, will decriminalize possession and use of marijuana, but will leave it as an administrative offense, punishable with GEL 100 fine.
