D Magazine’s Front Burner blog has a poll up about cite and summons (where instead of arresting someone for possession of small amounts of marijuana – thus taking up space in jail and costing we the taxpayer money – they issue the person a summons to appear in court) is a no-brainer policy Dallas should implement. Correction: should’ve implemented a long time ago. There’s no good reason to continue to drag our heels on this. Continuing a pointless and expensive tough on drug crime approach is just stupid (and did I mention really really expensive?)
