Petitions to Reduce Marijuana Penalties Submitted in Wichita

WICHITA, Kan. (AP)  Supporters of an effort to reduce penalties for marijuana possession in Wichita have delivered petitions to the city.  If the petitions contain enough valid signatures, the City Council will decide whether to adopt the proposal or put it on the April 7 ballot.  The petition organizers say they collected 4,500 signatures. They need 2,928 signatures to have the petitions validated.  The Wichita Eagle reports that the proposal would make a first-offense marijuana possession a criminal infraction with a $50 fine. The suspect would receive a summons or citation rather than being arrested. It would apply only to those 21 or older who have 32 grams or less of marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia.
