19 Feb Hillsborough County Decriminalized Cannabis Today
Today at the Hillsborough County Commission meeting, county leaders voted to decriminalize small amounts of cannabis.
This was done during a public hearing to enact a “Cannabis Ordinance” about decriminalize the possession of cannabis.
The ordinance mirrors the rules passed by the city of Tampa in 2016 and gives the police officer the discretion to offer a noncriminal violation for possession of less than 20 grams. This noncriminal violation is given in the form of a civil citation. Violators can receive four citations before the officer no longer has the discretion to offer a citation and is forced to give a criminal charge. On the third citation the violator is forced to attend drug screening, education and treatment programs.
Sheriff Chad Chronister spoke before the vote and voiced his office’s full support, saying it “will ensure fair and equitable enforcement throughout the county.”
