Orlando considers decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana
ORLANDO — Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer earlier this week discussed a possible new civil citation process for misdemeanor violations that would decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana.
Dyer, along with Orlando Police Chief John Mina and Organize Now, talked about the issue at a news conference at City Hall.
The process, which also will be discussed at a City Council meeting Monday afternoon, would decriminalize possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, allowing officers to issue citations, rather than make arrests.

Marijuana company wants naming rights to Denver Broncos stadium
The Denver Broncos could be looking for a new sponsor name for its home stadium in the future.
One potential sponsor is Native Roots, a marijuana dispensary company.
The current name of the Broncos' stadium is Sports Authority Field at Mile High. However, Sports Authority has filed for bankruptcy and may not be able to afford the $6 million annual payment to the Broncos.
Native Roots is one of Colorado's largest marijuana dispensaries, having expanded from one company to 14 outlets during the past year. A co-founder of the company said it is fully ready to make a multi-million dollar commitment if the contract between Sports Authority Field at Mile High and Sports Authority ends.
