And in Columbia, Missouri, the Columbia Alliance for Patients and Education (CAPE) has won certification of two municipal initiatives. The first would order city prosecutors to dismiss misdemeanor marijuana or paraphernalia possession charges if the defendant can show a doctor supports his need for marijuana for a legitimate medical condition. The other initiative, known as the Smart Sentencing Initiative, would require prosecutors to refer misdemeanor possession cases to the municipal -- not the state -- court, remove the possibility of jail time, and reduce the maximum fine from $1,000 to $250.

"We have succeeded in certifying both initiatives," said CAPE spokesperson Dan Viets, a local defense attorney and member of the NORML board of directors. "We will be on the ballot in November," he told DRCNet.

"The sentencing initiative eliminates all jail time and cuts the fines," Viets added, "but it also very importantly means you do not lose your eligibility for federal student financial assistance. The Higher Education Act only applies to state or federal convictions, not municipal ones. We think others should be aware of that and if they have municipal courts, they should do the same thing."
