DID MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS JUST LEGALIZE WEED IN KANSAS CITY, MO?!?!



Here's the word from the new mayor parting company with KCPD over local weed law . . .

Mayor Quinton Lucas: In recent weeks I've been wondering why municipal government is in the marijuana ordinance enforcement business at all? #KCMO is considering 100 gram decriminalization as an ordinance matter, but the better move may be to remove marijuana as an offense from the municipal code altogether.

It doesn’t change state treatment of marijuana possession, distribution, etc., as an offense, and thus our four (4) local prosecutors would still have ability to prosecute or decline to prosecute for any and all marijuana offenses. We won’t create inconsistency with state law or in the different counties in our city... instead we will just get out of the business.

Our municipal court resources for recovery and prosecution (and defense) can go to other areas and we can continue looking to address other concerns for which we have expertise and unique abilities for enforcement, not just duplicating what the county prosecutors already do.

Jean Petersucker Baker already said they aren’t going to prosecute weed offenders. Or murderers or rapists or robbers.

Mayor Q just wants to be able to toke when not in Lawrence and not have to worry about being busted.

^^Two stupid opinions from two stupid racists.

How do you justify to MO residents that they don't have as many rights as the people who live in DC? Or CA? or Canada? etc.

If the federal, & state government, wants to continue to lie, & say that marijuana is a dangerous narcotic, then let them enforce their own laws.

Lucas is right. It's not KCMO's business to enforce hateful, harmful federal & state laws that have no basis in scientific fact.

When you have an exploding murder rate, that should be what your police are working on.

So far Quenton has advocated for free bus rides, which would benefit the poor and for effectively legalizing marijuana, which would free up police for more important tasks, like solving and maybe even preventing murders.

That quite a switch from the previous mayor who never met a downtown development project he didn't think taxpayers should subsidize and who totally ignored the police.

I'm impressed. Keep up the good work, mayor.

Murder rates are high so instead of adding more police we'll just make more things legal. The absolute state of liberals

Is there any evidence that police are bogged down in minor weed arrests? No. This is the mayor just lying to you all while you slurp his taint

^^is there any evidence they're not? You failed to provided any, so your post is as worthless as you appear to be. Do better!

Yes the evidence is the KCMO prosecutor has already said she is not prosecuting minor weed crimes and before that there was an ordinance passed a few years ago making it a $25. God damn you're retarded

10:21 only poster I see posting after themselves all the time is you. That's you again at 10:31 and you'll post again after you see what I have said here. It's so easy to see what you say all the time and how you make fake comments acting like someone else so you can make comments to them.

You are one sick deranged person

Nobody should be getting caught up in the system for weed. It's dumb, outdated and needs to be decriminalized. Free up the cops to go after real crime.

God gave up on you fuckers a long time ago said...

All you Mother Fuckers need Jesus!, most services start at 9 tomorrow morning, put the booze down now and you might wake up in time to go! And dont worry it will be over in a hour , so you will have time to grab some booze after the service in time for your fat asses to make it home to watch the Cheifs game at noon. Keep doing what you are doing and you will keep getting what you are getting, and it seems a ton of people on here are full of hatred towards their fellow man...why waste time on that stupid shit people?
