A Kansas City Council committee on Wednesday put on hold a proposal that would loosen the rules regarding marijuana possession within city limits.The amended ordinance would decriminalize the possession of up to 100 grams of marijuana in Kansas City, Missouri.
The current ordinance, which voters approved in 2017, sets a maximum fine of $25 and no jail time for the possession of 35 grams or less of marijuana.
