Tuesday the Cannabis Civil Citation got unanimous approval by the City of Sarasota. That decriminalizes possession under 20 grams. It also covers paraphernalia, according to ABC Action News. Violators will get a $100 fine or must do 10 hours of community service. The measure is similar to those in Tampa, Port Richey, Orlando and Broward County. The goal is to prevent jail overcrowding. A misdemeanor possession charge came along with a mandatory driver’s license suspension.
