colombia-corteColombia’s Supreme Court ruled that growing up to 20 plants of marijuana is not a crime. The possession of small amounts of the drug had already been decriminalized. The court ruled on the private cultivation of marijuana in an appeal filed by a man who had been sentenced to more than five years in prison after he had been caught by police with a recently cut plant weighing 124 grams. The maximum amount of marijuana that can legally be carried is 20 grams in Colombia.
