TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS ANNOUNCES PLAN TO PARDON 8,000 MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CONVICTIONS!!!
Complex conversations regarding felony forgiveness and restorative justice have been an ongoing topic for discussion at 12th & Oak for years but now we're getting a TKC FIRST LOOK at the scope of plans to grant weed clemency from new Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas.
Here's the word . . .
Mayor Quinton Lucas speaking at a recent forum in D.C. - "I'm planning to pardon 8,000 folks with marijuana convictions on their record at the misdemeanor level . . . As part of that it's vital for us to actually reach people. And we know there are a lot of folks out there who have so much they want to give to their communities. That's just one."
Check the context of the conversation.
And so we ask . . .
WILL KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS GRANTING PARDON FOR THOUSANDS OF WEED BUSTS HELP OR HURT KANSAS CITY?!?!?
And the very least the new mayor will earn a rep as the most "kind" public official this town has ever seen.
On a serious note, as we've seen the rise of deadly drug cartels locally and the worsening scourge of substance abuse addiction in our neighborhoods . . . And so, the impact of this controversial move should be considered before City Hall proceeds.
You decide . . .
