Missouri: Lawmakers Fail To Consider Bill to Exempt Marijuana from Certain Forfeiture Provisions

Posted by on October 15, 2016

Senate Bill 761 was prefiled in the Missouri legislature to exempt marijuana from certain forfeiture provisions relating to controlled substances, however lawmakers failed to consider it this legislative session.

“Under current law, illegal controlled substances, anything of value exchanged for a controlled substance in violation of the law, money used to facilitate a violation of the controlled substances laws, money found in close proximity to an illegal controlled substance, and any other property used in relation to or derived from a violation of the controlled substances laws is subject to seizure and forfeiture.” This act exempts marijuana from these forfeiture provisions.

NORML would like to thank those of you who contacted your state lawmakers in support of this legislation.
