An initiativepurple to remove criminal penalties for the possession of small amounts of cannabis will be up for a public vote tomorrow, April 7th in Wichita, the largest city in Kansas.

If approved into law, the initiative would decriminalize the possession of up to 32 grams of cannabis for those 21 and older, making it a simple $50 civil infraction with no possibility of jail time.

Under current Kansas law the possession of any amount of cannabis is a misdemeanor that carries with it a potential year-long jail sentence.
