Once I am elected mayor, I am going to ease up on marijuana enforcement. Folks caught holding 20 grams or less won’t have to go to jail. We have bigger problems. These arrests will be a low priority. This should allow police to tackle problems — such as violent street crime, mortgage fraud, and public corruption — that have kept Miami-Dade down for too long.
I will also support a ballot measure that would classify possession as an infraction, which amounts to a speeding ticket. As the largest county in the state, Miami-Dade needs to take the lead in reforming Florida’s hard stance against marijuana. After all, we are the second largest pot-producing state after California.
