With two states already approving it and many more considering it, where does Missouri fall on the issue of Marijuana legalization. Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander announced Wednesday he has approved 13 different petitions to get an amendment on the ballot. But before a petition appears on a ballot, it would need almost 158 thousand signatures by May 2014. While 13 may sound like a lot, all of them were filed by one man, an attorney and advocate for marijuana legalization based in Columbia. KLPW wants to know how you feel about marijuana legalization.

The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
