Palm Beach County Votes to Decriminalize Pot Possession

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

Another Florida county has joined Miami-Dade, Hallandale Beach, Key West and Broward in decriminalizing marijuana. 

According to WPTV, the Palm Beach County Commissioners passed a motion 4 to 1 on Tuesday, making possession of 20 grams of pot or less a civil infraction. 

The ordinance gives police the option to issue a $100 citation rather than arresting the offender. If a person is unable to pay the citation, they will be able to work it off through community service. 

The measure was expected to pass after a preliminary approval by commissioners in October, but the final vote was pushed to December in order to work out the ordinance's language.

County Commissioner Priscilla Taylor, who originally proposed the measure, explained that decriminalizing the herb would ease jail overcrowding and keep pot possession charges from ruining the lives of otherwise decent and law-abiding citizens.

Opponents of marijuana legalization often cite the "skyrocketing" number of people seeking treatment for marijuana addiction in their arguments. Project SAM, the nation's leading anti-legalization group, notes with some alarm that "data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse found that in 1993, marijuana comprised approximately 8 percent of ALL treatment admissions, but by 2009 that number had increased to 18 percent."

But new data out this month from the Department of Health and Human Services provides some important context behind those numbers. In 2013, more than half of marijuana users in treatment were sent there by the courts or the criminal justice system. That's more than the share of court-ordered referrals for any other drug, including far more deadly ones like alcohol and heroin.
