Dallas Starting to Decriminalize Pot
DALLAS – Dallas County Commissioners have voted 4 to 1 to allow a program that decriminalizes marijuana possession. The new program is called “cite and release,” according to The Dallas Morning News.
The new measure will allow people caught will small amounts of marijuana to avoid going immediately to jail. Instead, those caught with weed will be fingerprinted and given a summons for a court date.
Those who show up at their court date will have to take a mug shot and be fingerprinted again. They will then see the judge and be set up with a lawyer for another court date. At that time, the DA will handle the case as usual. Those who miss the initial court date will have an arrest warrant against them signed by a judge.

Missouri Prosecutor Fined $12,000 for Violating Sunshine Law
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri prosecutor has been ordered by the court to pay $12,000 for refusing to provide public records to cannabis activists, according to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The ACLU filed the suit in 2015 on behalf of University of Denver law student Aaron Malin. The student wanted records pertaining to violations of drug task forces in Missouri’s drug war. The requests were refused by Mark Richardson, the Cole County Prosecutor.
Judge Patricia Joyce said in her ruling that the prosecutor violated the open-record laws on purpose with full knowledge of his actions and hit him with the hefty fine. She said that by repeatedly denying the requests, he violated state law. The open-record law is called the Sunshine Law and it guarantees that the government makes records available to the public. The ACLU hopes that the ruling will make other government officials think twice in the future from violating the law.
