NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 10: New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton (C) holds up a bag of oregano to demonstrate what 25 grams of marijuana looks like at a news conference with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (L) to announce changes to New York City's marijuana policy on November 10, 2014 in New York City. The commissioner and Mayor de Blasio announced that the city will start giving out tickets (and court summons) rather than arresting people for possession of 25 grams of marijuana and under. The new guidelines for officers will result in hundreds of less arrests per year, freeing up the police to focus on other crimes. It will also free those caught with the drug from having a damaging arrest record. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
