CELEBRATE KANSAS CITY MARIJUANA DECRIMINALIZATION COMING SOON?!?!



Call this Kansas City "grassroots" activism at its finest . . .

KCUR: Kansas City Marijuana Advocates Submit Signatures For Decriminalization

Deets:

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws' Kansas City branch submitted more than 4,200 signatures to the city clerk's office on Tuesday.

Under their proposal, if someone is caught with less than 35 grams of marijuana, they would get maximum fine of $25 and wouldn't be arrested. Current Missouri penalties for the same amount of marijuana include possible incarceration and fines up to $1,000.

Similar ordinances have been passed in St. Louis and Columbia.

Accordingly . . .

WILL CHEAP AND LEGAL WEED HELP KANSAS CITY REFOCUS ON FIGHTING VIOLENT CRIME RATHER THAN THE LOSING DRUG WAR???

You decide . . .

It's a lot easier to bust a stoner or write a traffic ticket than to bust real criminals. Somehow the KCPD will find a reason to avoid dealing with real crime.

The problem with these local yokel initiatives is they do not trump state or Federal law. For example be driving down 71 highway and get stopped by a state trooper or county sheriff and your ass is going to jail whether you are in the city limits or not.

Can we combine this with the $15 an hour petition and put the fast food workers on weed delivery duty. Let's make things more efficient and delicious!
