The Mayor of Kansas City is officially supporting a city ordinance that would strike possession of marijuana and would eliminate even fines for those who possess marijuana. In a recent news release, Mayor Quiton Lucas supports eliminating more laws that disproportionately affect black people and help “improve police-community relations”. The new ordinance is in line with the mayor’s pardon program for past nonviolent, minor municipal marijuana offenses launched early this year.
