Broward County commissioners give initial approval to marijuana ordinance

Broward County commissioners have granted preliminary approval for a new ordinance reducing small possession of marijuana to a civil citation.

Under the proposed ordinance, police officers will have the option of issuing a $100 civil citation for possession of 20 grams or less.

The fine could be waived if the offender chooses to attend a county-approved community service program.
