Missouri Lawmakers Introduce Two Medical Marijuana Bills
A couple of Missouri lawmakers will be pushing once again in the 2017 legislative session to legalize a comprehensive medical marijuana program for patients living with severe health conditions.
It was revealed this week that Senators Jason Holsman, a Democrat from Kansas City, and Rob Schaaf, a Republican hailing from St. Joseph, have separately introduced legislation to be heard in the upcoming session aimed at creating a statewide medical marijuana program.
Although there are not many details available on Holsman’s proposal, a measure filed under Senate Bill 56, the brass tacks of this effort is that it would allow the state to “grant licenses for the cultivation, manufacture, distribution, and sale of marijuana for medical use.”
Authorities: ‘Godfather of Grass’ Arrested in Canada
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say a man known as the “Godfather of Grass” has been arrested in Canada after eight years on the run.
The U.S. Marshals Service says authorities sought John Robert “Johnny” Boone after they seized 2,400 marijuana plants on his Kentucky farm. The agency said he was arrested Thursday when information led authorities to a small town outside of Montreal.
Boone, who is about 73, spent more than a decade in federal prison after being convicted in the 1980s in what prosecutors called the “largest domestic marijuana syndicate in American history.” They said he had 29 farms in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Wisconsin. The group became known as the “Cornbread Mafia,” and prosecutors said Boone was the leader.
Boone is awaiting extradition to the U.S.
