Missouri Rep. busted for marijuana says he will not resign despite GOP pressure


Missouri State Rep. Jeremy LaFaver.

As we reported yesterday, Representative Jeremy LaFaver, a Democrat from Kansas City, was arrested on Sunday after Missouri State Patrol officers stopped him and found marijuana in his car. He was charged with possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession. Now the Democrat is being pressured by the state’s Republicans to step down entirely.
But that’s not happening any time soon, LaFaver tells The Riverfront Times.
