NY Times columnist - legalize marijuana - Will SFPD stop ALL minor marijuana arrests?

According to the following New York Times' Tim Padgett, New York police "have been told they should no longer arrest people found in possession of small amounts of pot" (see column below). Will Police Commissioners please give the SFPD the same message? Will Chief Suhr take the initiative to do the right thing? How about D.A. Gascon? If New York can manage such a clear, common-sense directive, it should be a no-brainer here in SF.
