It was an interesting request at the Bend City Council meeting. Wednesday night, Ron Buzell, or "Rondo," a past and current Bend City Council candidate is urging the city to completely decriminalize the use of marijuana: "I ask the City Council today to for a declaration or resolution to completely decriminalize cannabis in any form or quantity. I ask for the Bend City Council today to cease using our community resources to arrest, prosecute or otherwise hinder or molest any person who participates in the growing or consumption of cannabis. Stop the insanity." Rondo spoke during the Public Comment session at Tuesday night's City Council meeting; so there was no discussion on the issue. He's urging Bend to follow in the steps of the Mayor of Seattle who is one of many people in Washington State leading the charge to legalize marijuana.
