KANSAS: We will know on Tuesday whether or not Wichitans will vote on a marijuana petition in April. The petition looks to lesson the fines and eliminate jail time for marijuana possession within the city.
The Wichita City Council will vote at its next meeting to put the issue on the ballot or not.
Council members have three options: Pass the issue outright and make it a city ordinance without a public vote. They could put the petition up for a legal challenge or let the voters decide this April.
The group who started the marijuana petition held an emergency meeting Sunday to go over plans for Tuesday. That’s their last chance to convince the city council to put the issue on the ballot.
