The mayor of Buffalo has requested the city’s police department to cease making low-level marijuana arrests.

The policy change is similar to those in other major cities around the country, including BaltimoreSt. LouisPhiladelphia, and Norfolk, Virginia.

Buffalo Police Captain Jeff Rinaldo offered no objection to the change, stating that “legalization appears to be on the horizon.” In December, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that enacting legislation to legalize and regulate adult marijuana use is among his administration’s top priorities.
