Key West, Florida – Decriminalized 

KEY WEST, Fla. -The Key West City Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to ease penalties for those caught with small amounts of marijuana.

Commissioner Mark Rossi proposed the new law, which would give police the option of issuing a $100 citation to anyone caught with 20 grams of marijuana or less. Police officers would still be allowed to arrest individuals caught with small amounts of marijuana at their discretion.
Similar ordinances were passed recently in Miami Beach and Miami-Dade County.

A final vote on the ordinance is scheduled for Sept. 1.
