Currently the way the law works in Wichita, Kansas puts getting busted for pot as the last thing you want to happen. But if the Pro-cannabis advocacy group, Kansas for Change, had their way, things may change for the better.
The president of Kansas for Change, Esau Freeman, is taking the lead roll by grabbing the reins on a statewide marijuana reform; his first step on the battle field is taking place in the largest city in Kansas: Wichita.
Wichita has brought up new weed laws that would apply to residents 21 years or older. If passed as written, the new repercussions for getting busted for a minimal amount of pot (32 grams or less) will be a $50 fine. Additionally, after being charged, if a clean record is kept for one year, all records of the incident will be expunged from their permanent record.
If the bill gets passed to decriminalize pot for Kansas, Wichita would send a message of more-relaxed marijuana laws. A previous effort to pass a similar bill before the voters this past year and came up short by 36 signatures after a promising 3,600 signatures were deemed inadmissible, and were thrown out. Polls reflected a 70% confirmation approving among voters for implementing a medical marijuana program in the Kansas, but attempts to create one in 2014 got held up in the state senate by a handful of politicians against all legal advances in marijuana culture.
