Local residents got their chance to weigh in on the proposed ordinance to decriminalize low levels of marijuana in Killeen on Tuesday — and nearly two dozen of them seized the opportunity.

A total of 22 speakers went to the microphone to say their piece about the proposed measure, with about half of them favoring the ordinance and about half of them opposed.

To say that the passage of this asinine, negative, hurtful petition would be harmful, on so many levels to the city of Killeen and it's law abiding, concerned citizens, is obvious to anyone that has any common sense.


I sure hope a lot of people read the article about the school board and what Mrs. Purser, the school board president, said about the weed ordinance. ...What do you think the teachers in Killeen think about this ordinance?...Think this ordinance would affect thousands of students in KISD negatively?.... .....BTW, that picture in the KDH the other day of "Groundgame Texas"members, with all the cheesey smiles, looked like a group that had all stolen cookies from the cookie jar and not got caught...or....told a big lie and gotten away with it.
