Kansas City Council Lady Canady Warns Of Weed Charges Despite Marijuana Reform

Local voters approved a recent petition initiative that challenges jail time for a small amount of weed . . . But the charges remain the same against po'folk who actually get picked up on an offense that's tantamount to jaywalking given the much more serious crimes on local streets nowadays. Take a look:

Councilwoman: new marijuana law lead to 'unintended consequences' in KCMO

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - One month after Kansas City voters approved an ordinance to ease penalties for people caught with small amounts of marijuana, city council members are continuing to address "unintended consequences." The ordinance "reduced the penalty but not necessarily the consequences of the criminality of it," said council member Alissia Canady.

So what is the bitch here? Do they want there to be zero consequences for something that would be a criminal act five steps outside the city limits? Ponder this. If a KC Patrolman pursues your vehicle one block outside the city limits and you have weed in the vehicle the city ordinance does not apply because you were caught in possession of pot outside the city limits.

Cannabis is now COMPLETELY LEGAL in California, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Washington DC and yes, Vermont! 29 states have legalized cannabis for “medical use”. Uruguay and Jamaica are now completely legal, Canada will go fully legal in 2018 and Mexico is moving forward toward full legalization.

According to figures from the FBI over 100 BILLION is spent on illegal recreational cannabis annually in the USA and all that money currently goes to criminals.

30 BILLION is lost in potential tax revenue.

Another 15 BILLION is spent on enforcing draconian cannabis laws that make absolutely no sense and destroy people's lives daily.

The Center for Disease Control posts that cannabis is much safer than booze or tobacco!!

Legalize, regulate and TAX!
