Miami-Dade County FL Police Considering Decriminalizing Marijuana

It looks like Florida counties are getting impatient with the Florida State Legislature’s laid-back attitude regarding implementing and awarding the five licenses to growers as stipulated in the law passed last year.

This article in the Miami Herald states that the Miami-Dade County Commissioner, Sally Heyman, is sponsoring the plan, which will allow a fine instead of arrest and jail time for possession of less than 20 grams (about 2/3 of an ounce).

If not vetoed by Miami Mayor Carlos Gimenez, the new ordinance will replace the current punishment of a maximum of one year jail time.  The police department supports this effort.
