A total of 184 marijuana cases that involve a possession or sale charge within Westchester County have been dismissed by the Westchester District Attorney’s Office.

“Dismissing all marijuana cases, including underlying bench warrants, has been a priority of mine, and the legislature’s repeal of Article 221 was long overdue. The decriminalization of marijuana possession is critical given the discriminatory way marijuana laws have been used to incarcerate people of color" stated Westchester District Attorney Mimi Rocah.

The DA's Office stated that they will not prosecute future violations or misdemeanors.
