He commends Marijuana Decriminalization Proposal
“I stand along side the Miami-Dade Police Department and the members of the Miami-Dade City Commission who are willing to take a strong step in favor of sensible marijuana policy,” said Javier. “Miami-Dade County police officers serve our community and help keep our streets safe each and every day. I applaud the Miami-Dade Police Department for recognizing that individuals should not be thrown in jail simply for possessing small amounts of marijuana,” he said.
"Draconian marijuana laws disproportionately impact minority and indigent communities. I support meaningful marijuana policy reform because I believe all citizens ought to be treated equally under the law," he continued. “I urge local policymakers to support this measure and work with the Miami-Dade Police Department to ensure that – when it comes to individuals who engage in victimless, private marijuana use – our values are reflected in our response. As city commissioner, I’ll be a strong advocate of sensible marijuana policy and work to make sure police officers use their resources to protect our city from those who truly threaten public safety."
