St. Louis city council to hold marijuana legalization forum


St. Louis city council members will hold a marijuana town-hall forum later this month at Harris-Stowe State University to discuss the possibility of decriminalizing cannabis.
Council members say they are concerned about the disproportionate number of arrests of blacks and Hispanic citizens for marijuana possession compared to arrests of white St. Louisans.
Three city Aldermen will meet discuss the pros and cons of decriminalizing and even taxing and selling cannabis along with a panel of cannabis supporters and opposition.
The meeting is set for March 24.
