TODAY: KANSAS CITY GRASSROOTS ACTIVISTS FIGHT CITY HALL FOR THE RIGHT TO CARRY MORE WEED!!!
The KCPD Chief shot down Ordinance #190702 with impressive blog arguments and a worthwhile refeer madness reference last week and Mayor Quinton proposes making local marijuana laws even more confusing by removing weed enforcement from the KCMO muni-code.
Meanwhile, later today this is gonna happen . . .
KANSAS CITY STONERS FIGHT CITY HALL FOR MORE WEED!!!
It's a noble struggle that might spare some people legal trouble if they're so out of it that they get caught with weed . . . Moreover, we always hope that marijuana law reform activism is a gateway for more serious local political involvement.
To be fair, this GRASSROOTS effort is enthusiastic and should remind locals of the backroom deals and lack of transparency that cloud most legislative decisions.
Here's the notice:
NORML: Kansas City, MO: Marijuana Decriminalization Expansion Effort
Currently, up to 35 grams of marijuana possession is decriminalized, subject to a civil fine of only $25. The proposed bill would increase that threshold to 100 grams, with no fine.
Join NORML KC on Wednesday, October 23rd before 9:30am on the 26th floor of City Hall to speak to the council in support of Councilman Brandon Ellington’s proposal to decriminalize up to 100 grams of cannabis in KCMO.
