Call me a cynic but this move seems more like an unashamedly squalid attempt to raise cash through fines as opposed to anything else. Especially given there is not one iota of evidence to say that either fines or jail work in combating; " Drug related violence ... that is eating away at our neighbourhoods".

They’re going to be making a lot of money, especially where I am. Everyone smokes weed, even whilst driving.

I guess it may dissuade some from openly splifing on the streets and public places.
