The council voted 5-4 Wednesday night to make possession of an ounce or less punishable by a fine of no more than $25. Previously, it was a criminal misdemeanor.

Activists had submitted enough valid voter signatures to force a public vote on the matter.

By approving the matter outright, the council hoped to avoid the costs of a vote and the uncertainty of the question even making the November ballot.
