The Bronx Defenders’ Scott Levy on Hot 97’s Street Soldiers with Lisa Evers Discussing the NYPD’s New Marijuana Policy
Scott Levy, Project Director of The Fundamental Fairness Project at The Bronx Defenders, took part in a dynamic conversation surrounding the NYPD’s new marijuana policy on “Hot 97 Street Soldiers with Lisa Evers.”
The radio program brought together drug policy experts, legal experts, law enforcement officials, and individuals with previous criminal justice involvement to discuss and debate the NYPD’s new marijuana policy. Starting November 9, 2014, police officers will have the discretion of simply issuing a summons for marijuana possession of 25 grams or less. Though this policy has its benefits, it fails on several fronts, particularly for the clients The Bronx Defenders represents on a daily basis.
