Missouri Senator proposes legalization of marijuana

Jefferson City, MO (KTRS) – Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal has introduced legislation to legalize and tax the sale of marijuana.

In a release, the senator says she has based her legislation on the Colorado plan. The group Show-Me Cannabis, who lobbies for the legalization of the drug, tells KTRS they support the legislation and say “Missouri arrests 20,000 people each year for marijuana offenses, and a disturbingly disproportionate number of those arrests come from minority communities.”

Chappelle-Nadal calls it a free-market jobs bill.
