A request from Hamakua Councilman Dominic Yagong to form an ad hoc committee with regards to the lowest law enforcement of cannabis ordinance was discussed on Tuesday.
With an audience mostly comprised of marijuana advocates, but also a few members of law enforcement including the Hawaii County prosecutor Jay Kimura, the Council Committee on Public Saftey and Parks and Recreation hatched out the details of the ad hoc committee.
Committee chair Yagong recommended he, along with that Emily Naeole-Beason, Brenda Ford, and Kelly Greenwell serve on the committee. It was also determined that the scope is “to work with the Chief of Police and Police Commissioner to provide for procedures to receive grievances from individuals who believe they were subjected to law enforcement activity contrary to the lowest law enforcement priority of cannabis.”
