Something’s got to give in the battle over local marijuana laws.

A controversial ordinance to decriminalize misdemeanor amounts of pot in Killeen and Harker Heights — approved by a large majority of voters — has been amended in one city and repealed in the other. | 254-501-7543

I think a much larger and higher thinking question is : Who and what is in Austin who cares so much about Killeen’s laws? This isn’t even their county. Who stands to gain from this “push”? Maybe they should fix Austin’s problems instead of creating more for Bell county.

The city council members not the entire city should be sued for that proposition. In the city of Killeen is what I'm referencing to, because I'm a Killeen resident. Why should an entire city be punished for those who knowingly well, that it would create a problem with the state law? Punish only those responsible for bad decision making. Now its up to Harker Heights what they decide. Thats my opinion.
