Highlights from Frankfort

Here is a review of just a few of the things going on in Frankfort:

Senate Bill 79 The Cannabis Freedom Act:  would make the possession of two ounces of marijuana or less a violation punishable by a maximum fine of $75.   It would also make the cultivation of 5 or fewer plants a misdemeanor.

House Bill 141 would establish the Problem and Pathological Gamblers Awareness and Treatment Program.

House Bill 135 is related to driving under the influence and would restructure the existing penalties from a four-tiered structure to a three-tiered structure; expand the look-back window for prior offenses from five years to ten years, and to allow forfeiture of motor vehicles used in a DUI if the operator’s license had been previously suspended.
