Rhode Island officials said police officers have written about 850 tickets under the new state law that classifies the possession of small amounts of marijuana as a civil violation. The Providence Journal reported that between April 1, when the law took effect, and the end of July, magistrates levied more than $110,000 in fines for possession of an ounce or less of marijuana. About $61,000 of that has been collected. Those cited included 663 adults and 92 juveniles. State Police issued the most tickets, followed by officers in Providence, Warwick, Cranston, and Pawtucket.
