TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! HIGH HOPES: MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS ANNOUNCES EPIC WEED KANSAS CITY PARDON AT PUBLIC SCHOOL AMID STATE OF THE CITY ADDRESS!!!



Last month our AWESOME TKC BLOG COMMUNITY was FIRST to report that Mayor Quinton Lucas planned to pardon 8,000 Kansas City misdemeanor marijuana convictions.

Today he made the announcement official during his speech at Center High School today.

However . . .

ALREADY CRITICS COMPLAIN THAT MAYOR LUCAS TALKING WEED FORGIVENESS AT A SCHOOL MIGHT NOT BE SENDING THE RIGHT MESSAGE!!!

Supporters are already spreading the social media love while others joke that the Mayor was mistaken in his effort to correct POT-HOLES.

Here's the aftermath of the speech . . .

Mayor's Speech Imagines A Kansas City Free Of Potholes, Bus Fares And Gun Violence

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas says that without focusing on basic city services in 2020, any goodwill that's been built up means nothing. "I can say Kansas City is on a roll, it has momentum ... until the cows come home," Lucas told KCUR ahead of Wednesday's State of the City address.

Kansas City mayor creates 'Pothole Czar' position to fix crumbling roads

by: Travis Meier Posted: / Updated: KANSAS CITY, Mo. - It's an issue with which many Kansas Citians are well-traveled: bad roads. During his State of the City address, Kansas City Mayor Lucas said he wants to make infrastructure a top budget priority for 2020. To do so, he has created a "Pothole Czar."

Speaking of "the cows coming home", when is the cattle drive through sophisticated diverse dense downtown KCMO going to be held?
Maybe some of the cows are afraid of being there after dark and might be concerned about most of the "human" behavior around the P&L District, it would still be a great event!
Warm-up for the World Soccer extravaganza.
Momentum!

Why hire another over-paid administrator to be the "Pothole Czar"? Why isn't the current Director of Road Maintainence doing his job in repairing and filling potholes?

Not that damn difficult; just requires properly supervising city workers and giving them goals to address the potholes city street by city street.

Using Bruce Watkins freeway as an example, there is currently trash everywhere on the shoulders and medians, dead shrubs and trees due to lack of maintenance, no attempt to match paint on bridges to cover graffiti, potholes, bums on every street corner panhandling.

It's like driving through a 3rd World country when all it takes is to get lazy ass government employees doing their jobs. If the City is short of labor, use minimum security prisoners to pick up the trash; they would probably enjoy getting some fresh air and work harder than government employees sitting on their ass counting down the days until their gold-plated pension kicks in.

Taxing a bunch of poor people doesn't result in much. Those in the metro with an income above poverty level moved to Johnson County years ago. For future reference, those with an income above poverty level don't worry about paying the water bill or the electric bill but like living in neighborhoods with streets and sidewalks and curbs and all of the things KCMO is lacking... KCMO missed the opportunity decades ago and the result is poor infrastructure and poorly maintained infrastructure. Decades of corruption does have consequences.

Lucas is a pothead, it’s starting to get out from people around him, this is why he’s doing this plus hes trying to help his friends who have been busted, nothing like using your position to get your friends off the hook.

There has NEVER been a rational justification for pot prohibition.

To justify making pot a crime in a free society, it not only would have to be inherently injurious (and more so than tobacco, alcohol or caffeine) but MORE injurious than arresting and locking people up. It is not enough that folks think that others SHOULDN'T use it. Hell, I disapprove of folks voting Republican -- something that has clearly some seriously bad impact for the country -- but I don't think that would justify arresting them for "voting while stupid"!
