NYPD to Stop Arresting People for Minor Marijuana Offenses
“The paper reports that the NYPD is expected to begin telling officers to issue tickets rather than make arrests in cases where people caught with small amounts of pot. The decision would represent a major shift in policing in New York City, where officers have arrested tens of thousands of people yearly on minor marijuana possession charges,”

That’ll last just about 3 microseconds after the first cop gets called out in a shift briefing for failing to meet his quota of arrests.

I’m pretty sure we’ve seen this claim before, with the same old results.
