If you don’t want to go to jail for possession of a small amount of marijuana, you might want to consider smoking it in Florida’s Dade County.

In you are caught with less than 20 grams of marijuana you will now more likely receive a civil citation instead of jail time.

An approved proposal by the Miami-Dade Commission will allow police to issue a $100 civil citation or the equivalent of community service hours for having up to 20 grams of marijuana.

Here is the catch.  The decision to arrest or issue a civil citation will still be up to the officer’s discretion.
