Things are heating up in Kansas City!

We are happy with the outcome of Kansas City’s Council vote to reduce the buffer zone from daycares, churches and schools to 300ft. We appreciate the Councilmembers hearing our testimony and taking our concerns into consideration. We look forward to working with them again in the future. Thank you to newly elected Mayor Quinton Lucas for working with us on this. THANK YOU to everyone who called, emailed, tweeted, texted, and who showed up to give public testimony over the last few weeks. It’s incredible what a small group of supporters can accomplish when we come together!

From the The Kansas City Star: “The ordinance passed Thursday places medical marijuana facilities a minimum of 300 feet away from schools, churches and day care facilities. Cultivators, manufacturers and testers face the same distance requirement for day care facilities and churches, but they must be at least 750 feet from schools.”

Patient Seminars II – Home Cultivation and Compliance 

Are you planning to cultivate your own medical cannabis or interested in being a caregiver? Please make plans to join us for our Patient Seminar II: Home Cultivation and Compliance. We will be breaking all of this information down into easy-to-understand steps. Join us at the 18th Street Union on July 20, from 2pm-4pm. This location is accessible and the general public is welcome to attend. We will also be discussing chapter updates, continued efforts and upcoming events.

Our Special Guest Speakers Will Be:

Kevin Mahmalji is the national outreach director for NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.

As a registered medical marijuana patient in the state of Colorado, Kevin has been growing marijuana for almost a decade. Most of his work has been from seed, both regular and feminized, but has also grown from clone. Much of his growing experience has been indoor, but recently expanded to try his luck with Colorado’s unpredictable outdoor growing season.

As a self-taught grower, Kevin has real world experience with each stage of the marijuana plant’s life cycle. From germination and seedlings, to vegetative and flowering, he has the proven knowledge to sustain a perpetual harvest and maximize yields. In 2015 Kevin used his knowledge of cultivating marijuana to organize Colorado’s first home grow safety symposium, which brought together top breeders, respected growers and processors and other thought leaders to explore the world of personal cultivation.

Paul Anderson is a licensed lawyer and experienced litigator in the state of Missouri. He helped pioneer one of the most prominent battles in sports – the NFL and NCAA Concussion Litigation.

Medical marijuana is of special interest to Paul since he knows firsthand the devastating effects traumatic brain injuries have had on his clients and the public. The promising medical literature points to cannabis as being a tool to combat and treat brain injuries. With the passage of Amendment 2, Paul intends to be at the forefront of accelerating access to qualifying patients.

Be sure to Save the Date for our Summer Seminars III (Cannabis and Mental Health) on August 17 

We are looking for volunteers to help at The Whole Person’s Main Street Music Festival, on July 27. We have shifts available throughout the day to help at our booth.  For more information, please email us at [email protected]

Are you a business owner who would like to sponsor one of our upcoming meeting or events? Contact us at [email protected]. Please consider making a donation to help us further marijuana law reform and continued community and patient education.

Marijuana policy should be evidence based. Help dispel the myths with NORML’s Fact Sheets! For more information follow NORML KC on Facebook, and visit our website!
