Springfield, Missouri marijuana decrim. bill again shot down, activists debate lawsuit


Couldn’t resist.

Springfield, Missouri City Councilman Doug Burlison believes that marijuana can be a helpful medicine and that it’s time to stop treating it like such a harmful, dangerous drug.

The council once again voted down the initiative this week. Riverfront Times has the rest.
