MISSOURI: A group is making its way through Missouri to gain support for legalizing marijuana.
Wednesday night, Show-Me Cannabis held a town hall meeting in Kansas City.
They say 20,000 people are arrested every year in Missouri for cannabis possession. That makes up one third of all arrests.
“About $150 million every year from prohibiting cannabis and that’s about the same amount we spend on our community colleges in this area.” Executive Director John Payne said.
