The city council in St. Louis, Missouri has decriminalized the possession and cultivation of marijuana in a unanimous vote yesterday.

The proposal, introduced by Alderman Bret Narayan (that’s what St. Louis calls a member of a county council) was voted in favor 23-0. This doesn’t change Missouri’s state law that forbids marijuana, but it’s a step in that direction.

Possessing over 2 ounces of cannabis is still a criminal offense.

St. Louis follows in the footsteps of Kansas City, which decriminalized marijuana one year ago.
