For Miami residents, the summer sun includes the beautiful beaches and possible marijuana decriminalization? Miami voters are going to be able to cast their ballots for decriminalization come this November. The current laws in Florida are possession of less than 20 grams of pot is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. This ballot, if successful would change that to just a $100 Dollar Fine, similar to a civil fine with no jail time. I am for full legalization but brick by brick is going to be required to build our Pot Utopia.
Here is a video of advocates fighting for marijuana to be decriminalized in Miami Beach.
Here are some resources on how you can get involved.
