If Chicago’s top cop has his way, marijuana possession is not going to be decriminalized anytime soon around here.

Despite calls for a major change in policy, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Saturday that cops aren’t going to stop busting people they catch with small amounts of pot, though he said the department is studying whether it might process arrests differently—perhaps by issuing tickets rather than taking people to the station and locking them up.

“We will continue to make arrests for illegal behavior, whether it’s public urination or whether it’s carrying a firearm,” McCarthy said after participating in an anti-violence march in the Austin neighborhood with Mayor Rahm Emanuel and area residents. McCarthy said he and the mayor had spoken about the issue and were in agreement.
