The 21-year-old son of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has been cited for marijuana possession.
KRCG-TV reports that Willson Nixon was cited early Saturday for possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana after police were called to investigate complaints of a loud party at a Columbia apartment complex.
An organization called Show-Me Cannabis wants to ask Missourians to vote on the legalization and medical regulation of marijuana.
Under the proposal, pot use, possession and small-scale growing would be decriminalized for Missourians who are 21 or older. The state would also be required to issue retail licenses to sell the drug and oversee a medical marijuana program.
Campaign Director Amber Langston said it’s important to at least have a discussion about the benefits of marijuana.
