Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas Weed Clemency Proven Correct After House Passes Bill To Decriminalize Marijuana?!?

More than any other top ranking elected official in Kansas City history, Mayor Quinton Lucas has been at the forefront of efforts to decriminalize marijuana.

In August, Mayor Q's efforts culminated in an ordinance remove marijuana offenses from the municipal code.

There has been some opposition to these efforts as KCPD Chief Smith argues that the impact on public safety needs to be part of this conversation.

However, this week, the political zeitgeist seems to stand with the current 12th & Oak administration against weed prohibition.

And so we ask . . . 

HAS MAYOR Q'S WEED POLICY BEEN PROVEN CORRECT BY THE HOUSE PASSING A HISTORIC WEED FREEBIE MOVE?!?

Sure, it's just a bill but we notice some surprising Republican support among younger lawmakers and a realization the weed prohibition simply hasn't worked as a matter of expensive and ultimately destructive public policy. 

Moreover, weed is now more readily available than bubble gum and impractical enforcement of restrictions that NOBODY respects undermines confidence in the law overall.

Accordingly, the end of weed prohibition might by the only liberty granted by the Biden Administration as more fundamental American freedoms quickly disappear in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Marijuana was only illegal for poor people, rich people were always able to smoke it. Better off to drop the charade rather than keep putting broke people in prison for it. Way too expensive.

The war on drugs was just another effort to spy on law abiding adult. Technology is what really killed it. Now people will pay thousands of dollars to carry a tracking device in their hands all day.

So I wonder now since it’s legal how that affects city employees when it comes to drug and alcohol testing???

If you went to prison for pot and then you get released because the law changed does that mean anybody that got fired for smoking pot get their jobs back???

Waiting for your response mayor.

Oh wait, the house only passed it, it still has to go through the senate so it’s not a done deal yet.

Watch out stoners, it’s still against the law so back to your hiding spots you go!

If y'all get to smoke weed and act stupid legally, I'm get to keep my guns so if you wander into my house or on my property I can shoot you legally.

POLCY? LEARN TO SPELL DUMBASS said...

Since it will never pass the Senate, this is a pointless question.

POLCY!

That's less a spelling error than it is a missed keystroke, dipshit.

Every liberal idiot will fall for this too. There is big money in this for crooks like Quinton Lucas and at the same time they can keep you stoned and stupid for control reasons. Nancy Pelosi said this years ago when she told everyone to quit their jobs and have a good time. How can anyone not see what this is really about?

i think it is excellent about the new reefer rules but as usual my state of kansas will be one of the last to conform to the new norm - some people are just too square and non open minded when it's talk about a god given plant.

There are two reasons for the War on Drugs:

It was created as an excuse to wage war on the war protestors.

At the same time, there was a heroin epidemic among our soldiers in Vietnam.

However, there is a big difference between heroin & marijuana, unless you've been drinking the DEA's cool-aid. This vote further marginalizes the DEA's ridiculous stance that marijuana is a "gateway drug", & therefore should be considered a "dangerous narcotic".

It's not a narcotic, & it's not dangerous.

Portugal decriminalized all drugs & nothing happened. Use didn't go up, or down. Petty crimes didn't go up or down. Instead of treating addicts like criminals, or the mentally ill, addicts could finally be treated as patients.

Liberal House of Representatives do the same thing our liberal mayor did and this somehow proves him right? This is like one Chief proving the other one right about the outcome of a game.
