Marijuana Reform in Hallandale Beach

 

Friends & Neighbors:
When I asked for you vote, I promised that I was going to be a champion for fiscal accountability and public safety. At this evening’s City Commission meeting, I’m looking forward to keeping that promise.
 
This evening, the Commission will be voting on my proposal to reform our city’s marijuana laws, providing our officers the option to write a $100 citation instead of arresting minor drug offenders. 
 
This proposal will do two very important things:
  • It will prevent tax dollars from being wasted on prosecuting minor marijuana possession charges that have minimal impact on public safety and unfairly target minorities and poor.
  • It will allow police officers to focus their efforts on more serious forms of crime plaguing our streets, unclogging a criminal justice system too often bogged down with cases of minor marijuana possession. 
If passed, Hallandale Beach will be the first city in Broward County to approve such a measure. It will be a historic victory for common sense and responsive government.
 
For more information, please review the Sun Sentinel’s recent story on the measure, featured below. As always, if you have a question or concern please do not hesitate to email me at londonshow@bellsouth.net.
 
Yours in service,
Commissioner Keith London
 
 
August 3rd, 2015
 
Get caught in Hallandale Beach with up to 20 grams of marijuana, and you may be looking at a $100 civil fine instead of criminal charges.
 
Following the lead of Miami Beach and Miami-Dade County, Hallandale Beach city commissioners are expected to give initial approval to the new law Wednesday night.
 
City Commissioner Keith London won quick support from his colleagues after pitching the idea in June. Should the measure pass, Hallandale Beach might be the first city in Broward County to pass such a measure.
 
This week, London said he wanted to get minor pot offenses out of the criminal system. Right now, people caught with small amounts of weed or drug paraphernalia can be sent to jail alongside violent criminals, London said.
 
"To put nonviolent [drug users] in jail with violent felons is not going to solve our problems," he said. "That's why I'm doing this."
 
"The war on drugs has been a complete and uttermost failure," London said. "We need a new approach. And other parts of the country have taken a different approach."
