2 Tuesday, April 20, 1971 Legislative action roundup Marijuana penalty Gazette-Journal Legislative Bureau The Senate, by voice vote, agreed Monday to a plan that will allow reduction of the penalty for possession of marijuana to first time offenders under 21. The measure says a district judge has the authority to find the defendant guilty of a felony or a gross misdemeanor if the defendant is caught with less than one ounce of marijuana in his possession. Sen. Warren Monroe, P-Elko, said this was more realistic than the Assembly version. The amendment was adopted in the Senate to the uniform controlled substance act. A felony provides for a 1-6 year term in the state prison but a gross misdemeanor allows up to one year in the county jail and a fine of $1,000. Birth certificates Gazette-Journal Legislative Bureau A bill allowing officials to amend birth certificates if a child is born out of wedlock and acknowledgement of paternity is later established passed the Nevada Assembly. AB 727 says the new certificate would be identical with the certificate of a child born in wedlock and the original certificate would be sealed and opened only with a court order of a competent court. Welfare fraud The Assembly lias agreed to back down on earlier action increasing the prison sentence of recipients convicted of cheating on welfare. Assemblymen had approved a controversial bill hiking the penalties for welfare fraud to a maximum 10 years in prison and $5,000 fine. However, the Senate lessened the penalties to the maximum of one year in prison and a $1,000 fine and the Assembly agreed on the amendment Monday.
