Dear Editor,

It's a good thing that the City of Asbury Park in Monmouth County has passed a resolution in favor of marijuana legalization.

But a resolution isn't going far enough. Asbury Park should follow up with a city ordinance directing the police department to make enforcement of marijuana laws their lowest law enforcement priority.

Such an ordinance would make marijuana de facto legal in the City of Asbury Park and actually stop people from getting arrested, instead of providing lip service.
