Wichita, Kansas -
(KSNW) A Kansas group has taken to a very public way to push for legalized marijuana.
"Fire It Up Kansas" recently paid for an ad on a digital billboard near the Kansas Star Casino demanding the state legislature to legalize, tax and regulate the sale of marijuana.
"It's currently in a black market with no regulation, no asking for ID because drug dealers don't care," Mike Golden, the group's co-founder, said. "If you take it out of that black market and put it in a legal market, it takes away the criminal element."
The push for legalization has also received support from a prominent senior citizens' group, although they are only supporting legalized pot only for medicinal use.
The Silver-Haired Legislature recently approved a non-binding resolution supporting Senate Bill 9, which would allow people to use marijuana for medicinal purposes with a doctor's approval.
"It would really help me because I am in pain all over my body," Celia Chace, a member of the group, said. "I would love to be able to try it. I don't want to smoke it, but try it in a cookie or brownie or something."
