Missouri lawmakers weigh new push on marijuana reforms

Sunday, 22 September 2013 08:25 Published in Local News

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri legislators who favor relaxing the state's marijuana laws are weighing a renewed push for reforms.

House Democrats Chris Kelly of Columbia and Rory Ellinger, of University City were among the speakers Thursday at a Columbia forum on marijuana policy.

Kelly and Ellinger backed legislation this year that would have made possession of small amounts of marijuana a low-level misdemeanor with no jail time, similar to a traffic ticket. Columbia and St. Louis already have such laws.

The Columbia Missourian reports Kelly says he would favor pursuing full legalization of marijuana only if there were enough organizational support from pro-legalization groups.

Kelly's also uncertain whether it would be wiser to seek legislative approval of lower penalties for marijuana possession or to put any proposed reforms on a statewide ballot.

Saturday, 21 September 2013 08:49 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Governor Jay Nixon has appointed a St. Louis County attorney to be the new chairman of the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission.

Nixon on Friday appointed Andrew Leonard. He replaces Robert O'Loughlin, who resigned Thursday after 35 years on the board, including five as chairman.

The CVC promotes the St. Louis region as a convention and meeting site and a tourism destination.

Leonard is a partner in the Chesterfield law firm of McCarthy, Leonard, Kaemmerer. His term on the CVC expires September 19th, 2015.

The commission consists of 11 members, five of whom are appointed by the St. Louis mayor, five by the St. Louis County executive, and one by the governor. The governor's appointee serves as chairman.

President Obama decries efforts to kill health care law

Saturday, 21 September 2013 08:46 Published in Local News

CLAYCOMO, Mo. (AP) — President Barack Obama is railing against attempts by, quote, a "faction of the far right" to undermine his health care law.

Obama tells an audience near Kansas City, Missouri quote, "They're focused on trying to mess with me. They're not focused on you."

Obama spoke shortly after the Republican-controlled House voted cut spending for the health care law, as part of a measure to extend current spending into December.

Obama says failure to raise the debt ceiling would send the economy into a tailspin.
