IncSmart Florida (Small Business and Startups) - The larger counties and cities in Florida, which including Miami-Dade, Orlando, Tampa, Key West, and Broward County, have passed laws that gives police an option of issuing a citation rather than making an arrest for possession of marijuana. But two laws have been introduced to the state legislature, would end the option for arrest of possession. Currently, possession of an ounce or less of marijuana is a misdemeanor criminal offense. This has the potential for up to a year in jail. The new laws would make possession a non-criminal civil violation, similar to a parking ticket.
40,000 people have arrested for misdemeanor drug offenses in Florida Records indicate that 90% of those were marijuana possession.
