Voters in the city of Columbia might have decided to decriminalize marijuana, but the police department at the University of Missouri says students better not think they can get away with very much. The new city ordinance says a person caught with 35 grams of marijuana or less will be referred to the city court so no state criminal record is established. The ordinance applies to Columbia police.

And the prosecutor says he’s likely to prosecute repeat offenders.
