Not so fast friends... it is still illegal... for now.

Starting today, September 1st, the NYPD will no longer go straight to arresting you if you're caught with a "small amount" of weed on you. Instead, you'll be issued a summons. The City is thinking this will eliminate about 10,000 arrests per year.

However, if you have a criminal record, you could still get arrested... for now.
