TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR 'MEAN JEAN' PETERS BAKER REVISES POLICY AND WILL NO LONGER TARGET MOST MARIJUANA POSSESSION!!!



The latest chapter in the drug war offers a glimpse at shifting public opinion and now authorities also reflect that sentiment.

To wit . . .

JUST NOW . . .

JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR MEAN JEAN PETERS BAKER ANNOUNCED A KIND MOVE TO CHANGE POLICY PROSECUTING MARIJUANA POSSESSION!!!

The caveats makes sense in protecting youngsters and local streets but there is no doubt this move is GROUNDBREAKING and the latest sign that the drug war against weed is lost . . .

From The Courthouse: After state vote, Jackson County Prosecutor changes policy on prosecuting marijuana

Nov. 13, 2018

As two of three voters in Missouri last week supported a Constitutional Amendment to legalize medical use of marijuana, the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office will no longer prosecute marijuana possession cases, with some exceptions, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

“Voters were discerning in considering the issue,” Baker said. They rejected two lesser proposals, she noted, but voted in convincing numbers in support of one measure, Constitutional Amendment 2, on the Nov. 6 ballot.

In Jackson County on Nov. 6, 2018, Amendment 2 won even stronger support, with three of four Jackson County voters in favor. Across the state, the amendment passed with 66 percent of voters’ approval. Missouri follows 30-plus other states in some form of legalization of marijuana.

“That mandate from voters is directing this shift in our office,” Baker said. “This changing attitude toward marijuana is something we have been seeing anecdotally from our juries for some time.”

Exceptions to Jackson County’s new policy on prosecution of marijuana possession will be cases in which facts show the person is selling or distributing the drug without proper authority. For example, the office will still evaluate for prosecution cases where the offender is found to be in possession of items that are routinely associated with the illegal sale or distribution of marijuana, such as individually packaged bags of the drug, a scale or large of cash or firearms.

The Prosecutor’s Office will continue to prosecute cases in which the possession of marijuana results in drugged driving or where possession of maijuana results in harm to a child.

Baker also announced that her office will undertake two public safety awareness campaigns in Jackson County.

The first will warn caregivers to keep packaged edible marijuana away from children as some states have seen increased incidents of children ingesting marijuana, otherwise they may face prosecution.

The second will focus on “drugged driving,” stressing that marijuana users cannot drive under the influence – that remains illegal.

“Voters spoke very clearly and overwhelmingly,” Baker stated. “But we need to keep the drug – like any drug – away from the kids, and driving while high is a serious crime that puts us all at risk.”

It should be noted that the actions of the Jackson County’s Prosecutor’s Office have no impact on federal policy, which makes possession of marijuana a crime.

Maybe the best news that KC stoners have ever heard. Those who aren't totally high and can control their urges just a bit now have defacto decriminalization.

Nice.

Does Kansas City really need more weed on the streets? I know it's unpopular to say but I think this will lead to even more crime and more violence on local streets. Yes, for the average person this is probably a relief so they don't get caught for a half ounce but this should lead to more distribution and more organized sales and that is will be the real breeding ground for criminal conspiracies. This might now be a big deal now but 10 years from now it will have a negative impact.

Yes, because everything we as a society have been doing with prohibition and drug laws have been working out perfectly....

This isn't a dig at the prosecutor -- when we've crossed paths, she has been exceedingly polite and cordial. However, if you are looking for leadership on issues that are in any way controversial, don't look to elected politicians. Stick a finger into the wind and decide what you are for and against. Way to risk it all, Jean!!!

She doesn’t prosecute murders either so who gives a fuck? Jean Petersucker Baker is the weakest dick prosecutor ever. She is a huge reason why violent crime is so high in Kansas City, because the criminals are never capably prosecuted.

I wish Jean Petersucker Baker would get fired for her pathetically limp-wristed, weak ass handling of black criminality in her jurisdiction. Her reluctance to effectively prosecute the crimes of young black males is clearly obvious.

..and your pathetic and misogynistic hatred of her is clearly obvious as well!

Typical ignorant liberal response. How can one argue that she is an effective prosecutor? I'd love to hear your opinion. Instead, we all get to hear you spout venom against anyone who disagrees with you. I'll bet you're the type of traitorous scumbag that labels anything that hurts your feelings as hate speech and would jump at the chance to suppress any comments that dont conform to your backwards talking points. Honestly, our America would be so much better off if you were to leave. I hear Venezuela is more in line with your fascist ideology. Maybe go fuck off there?

Wow never thought I would see the day! I guess cynics always find something to decry but this looks to me like an elected official listening to the will of the people. Also a smarter devotion of scarce resources. But it won't help me find anything other than ditch at rip-off prices. To change that I need to find some friends.

We've been told for years that convictions for low level drug offenses are the reason the jail is so full. Now that low level drug offenses will no longer be prosecuted, we'll find out whether that was true.

Whether you agree with her decision or not, you must admit that she's taking the law into her own hands by refusing to enforce the law. Would it be OK for a prosecutor to decide to not prosecute theft or murder cases? If not, then this is not, either.

So police can still arrest you and you can get charged in city court, correct?

The city of KCMO and the county of Jackson County have different courts. So you can still be arrested and charged.

Mr 3:23 no the difference is in a theft or murder case there is a victim. Someone to show up at the prosecutor office and say "did you guys ever get that guy who did that to me? How is the file coming along?"
Littering has more social harm than a drug possession case.

Mr 3:53, municipal charges - while not nothing - are a lot less draconian than a state case. Plus there may be city or police policies not to press possession cases too hard, either as a stated policy or a de facto.

I can’t stand the marijuana critics. Idiots that drink a bunch of alcohol and take OxyContin and think someone who smokes a bowl has the problem. Outdated reefer madness needs to go away. Bunch of Clinton and Obama voters who never criticized them for using it. Then you have you subset of idiotic republicans who think weed has a different affect on black people than white people.


Prescribing kids Prozac and other psychotic drugs is just fine, but that damn marijuana can’t be legal! You damn worthless potheads!

Some people argue just to argue. Some people just want to spout their opinion. Some people are just trolls and want to rile others up.

Don’t waste your breath (or fingers).

It’s foolish and a waste of time to argue with those people.

In fact, for me, I avoid Facebook arguments (and arguments online in general) because I know they are generally pointless. People don’t want to understand – they just want to spout. I just don’t waste my time.

You shouldn’t either.

I'm a weed critic. I think it's retarded to smoke and only retards smoke it. But I think it should be legalized 100 percent.

I don't like that the prosecutor is doing this without it being legal because it will lead to prohibition style grift and crime like that. Our current weed situation is pretty much like prohibition was. Even though alcohol was illegal, it wasn't really prosecuted in a lot of places, including KC. But there was a ton of underground crime that arose from this dynamic.

This will lead to a lot more unintended consequences than people realize. They really need to officially legalize it or continue to prosecute it. not do what they're doing because that makes life worse for everyone except weed smokers

During Prohibition it was illegal to sell or distribute alcohol, but it was not illegal to consume it. Go figure.

Put the Chiefs out on the field next game all stoned on weed and see how that works out.

Stoneed Chiefs fans will cause a run on the food stands at Arrowhead. Fighting would break out when snacks are all gone if the fans were drunk. But since they will just be stoned they will all gather around and do the tomahawk chop with glazed eyes wondering where they might find some chips and cheese dip at.

By the fourth quarter the noisiest stadium in the country will be the quietest one since all will be nodding out to some good buds.

Oh great excuse 8:43 for not having fuck all to contribute to this conversation you fucking troll. Calling "Mean" Jean by the the name she EARNED is not holding you back from rational thought and discourse. I mean, the bitch sucks sick at prosecuting crimes, hence the nickname "Petersucker".

Methinks you are not capable of rational thought or discourse. I hope you get aids and herpes in your eyes.
