Marijuana

JEFFERSON CITY — Members of Show-Me Cannabis are hoping to persuade lawmakers to support legislation legalizing some marijuana use in Missouri. 

On Tuesday, the group, and dozens from around the state, roamed the capitol advocating for six bills the Senate and House will debate later this session.

John Payne, executive director of the group, said the bills are a sign that legalization is becoming more acceptable.

Groups proposing limited penalties for marijuana possession have filed a federal lawsuit against the City of Springfield, City Council, and City Manager for its handling of an ordinance. KSMU’s Scott Harvey explains.
