We will be introducing an ordinance for the Louisville Metro Council’s consideration that makes cannabis possession the lowest law enforcement priority of the Louisville Metro Police Department.
The Louisville Metro Council meeting is Thursday August 9th at 6 p.m. at 600 West Jefferson in downtown Louisville. This is the next step we need to take at cities across Kentucky. Local councils have oversight authority of their local police departments. The lowest law enforcement priority ordinance (LLEPO) does three things.
1) It directs the Local police to not arrest anyone for cannabis possession or cultivation
2) It creates a process for anyone who does get arrested to have their charges dropped
3) It requires the Metro Council to send a letter annually to Frankfort, Washington and the UN asking them to enact similar legislation.
Cities all over the United States have enacted no fine or decriminalization measures. If anyone wants a copy of the ordinance DM me with your email address and I’ll send you the document. You can modify it for your city. If we can get this passed in Louisville, Lexington, Henderson and other cities it will provide great momentum going into the 2019 legislative session.
The picture was taken the night we got the medical resolution passed in Louisville. Come out and support us on August 9th and let’s get another picture!
