Marijuana: St. Louis aldermen pass reform bill, mayor likely to sign it into law


St. Louis.

The St. Louis Board of Aldermen has officially passed a local marijuana reform bill that aims to save police resources and reduce punishments for the most minor possession offenses.
“This is a good, practical move for the city of St. Louis to alleviate police and prosecutorial resources on minor drug offenses,” Alderman Shane Cohn, the bill’s sponsor, tells Daily RFT. “Hopefully, we’ll be able to continue this dialogue into the future.” Sam Levin at the (St. Louis) Riverfront Times has more.
