Carl is the founder and Executive Director at United for Missouri and United for Missouri's Future.

  • Texas & Missouri - Draconian Laws Being Challenged

    in News

    With possession of less than two ounces carrying a prison term of up to six months and a fine up to $2,000 Texas is one of the most repressive and scary states for marijuana consumers. From marching on the State Capitol in Austin to activist training/public education to submitting bills reforming the state’s draconian laws, Texas NORML is changing the picture. Texas NORML Veteran’s Affairs director Dave Bass will review the dismal legal situation in Texas, reveal where progress is being made and explain the programs Texas NORML has developed to drag their state into the 21st Century.


     


    Missouri ain’t much better than Texas with possession of less than an ounce imposing fines and prison sentences up to $1,000 and a year in jail with convictions for sales of less than five grams imposing a prison sentence of up to a 7 years. Mark Pederson with the Cannabis Patient Network is working with a group of Missourians to bring before the voters the Missouri Cannabis Restoration and Protection Act which defines marijuana as food!!! As the show’s second guest, Mr. Pederson will explain this unique approach to legalizing marijuana and their program to get it on the ballot.
