Life San Francisco Gets Pot-Friendlier
Local pot activist and Slog tipster Dominic Holden alerted us to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ consideration of a city ordinance much like Seattle’s blessed I-75, which would make the majority of San Francisco’s marijuana violations “the lowest law enforcement priority” for city police.
According to the SF Chronicle:
“[Supervisor Tom Ammiano’s] nonbinding ordinance directs police to essentially ignore all marijuana crimes except those involving minors, driving under the influence of the drug or the sale of marijuana in a public place….If passed, the ordinance would commit the city to refusing federal funds intended for the investigation or prosecution of marijuana offenses. It also would prevent a federal agency from commissioning or deputizing a city police officer for assistance in such cases.”
