City Commission - Emporia, KS: Decriminalize Marijuana

This petition had 27 supporters

As of right now anyone charged with possession of marijuana less than an ounce in Emporia, KS faces a $1,000 fine, and six months in jail, and a minimum of a year on probation. We feel that the current drug laws do not properly represent the community and lead to the ruining of many adolescent and early adult lives. We believe law enforcement should be focusing the majority of their attention on violent offenders or more serious drug offenses such as meth and crack cocaine. We believe it is in the best interest of the community to amend the current laws in relation to marijuana, so that it is not an arrest-able offense, but rather an minor offense deserving of a citation no more than $100 dollars, community service, or drug counseling and education.
