KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There’s been a lot of discussion in Missouri about legalizing marijuana, but so far nothing has passed into law.

KC Stark, who’s leading a seminar Saturday, July 21, in Kansas City, hopes to inspire more people to push for legalization.

Right now, hemp is legal in the state of Missouri.

There could be measures on the November ballot pushing to make marijuana legal, both for recreational and medical use.

This means anyone over 18 with a terminal disease would be allowed to use smokeless medical marijuana. Those who have Alzheimer’s, cancer, PTSD and other conditions would be eligible as well. 

Stark shared his thoughts on what the future has in store for the cannabis industry. 

"America has a chance to revolutionize the economy," Stark said. "It's a social, economical, political environmental change. It touches almost every aspect of our society to the clothes we wear to the medicines we take, cannabis is a revolution."

The seminar will start Saturday with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Courtyard Kansas City by Marriott in Blue Springs, Missouri. For more information, click here.
