With the legislative session drawing to a close, Kansas action on marijuana remains unlikely
TOPEKA — Kansas has seen all smoke and no fire on the cannabis front, despite efforts from Democrats who say the state is losing business to neighbors where marijuana is legalized.
House Minority Leader Vic Miller, a Topeka Democrat, has renewed his push for a cannabis amnesty bill signed by 35 representatives during the last few days of the legislative session. The bill would release those convicted for marijuana-related offenses from their sentences and allow the expungement of their records — essentially decriminalizing marijuana statewide.
Miller calculated that the bill would release 72 residents from adult correctional facilities, 94 people from parole and post-release supervision, 42 individuals from adult community corrections supervision, and 36 individuals from juvenile community corrections supervision.
