ISSUES: Broward: Pot & Taxes

While a proposed sales tax to fund transportation solutions in Broward is likely dead, Broward voters will still be asked to approve a new penny sales tax this fall. Broward’s Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), which is lead mostly by Broward cities’ officials, voted down the transportation tax this week, instead offering up a plan focused on infrastructure improvements, which gives a bigger piece of the pie to cities. And six months after approving an option to issue tickets in lieu of jail time for minor marijuana possession, NONE have been issued. Why?
