Lawsuit Filed Against Missouri Narcotic Officers Association

Director of Research for Show-Me Cannabis Aaron Malin filed a lawsuit today against the Missouri Narcotic Officers Association for repeated violations of Missouri’s Sunshine Law. The suit was filed Pro Se in the Civil Division of the Circuit Court of Boone County.


The lawsuit alleges the Missouri Narcotic Officers Association “purposefully, or in the alternative, knowingly, violated the Sunshine Law” by repeatedly ignoring and denying lawful Sunshine requests to a “quasi-public governmental body.” Malin has filed multiple Sunshine Law requests dating back to March 20, 2014 seeking budgetary documents and other specific records from the organization, all of which have been rejected or ignored entirely.

“The Sunshine Law is a mechanism for much-needed transparency in government,” Malin said. “Missourians have a fundamental right to know how their tax dollars are spent, and I will use every tool available to bring questionable activity to light.”

Malin has conducted research over the past year that has focused heavily on drug enforcement practices in Missouri. He’s filed over a hundred Sunshine Law requests with dozens of agencies to obtain basic information about the tactics used to fight the ‘War on Drugs’ in Missouri.

    After success in Iowa, we will be heading that direction. The Dakota’s are targets as well. Yes, there are grassroots organizations that will fight for you as well as their own state. Their “war” is a scam peddled by an industrialist group in 1936 and pressure on the right points will win, but let’s not be like last time and forget all we’ve won!!!

  2. The penalties for not filing timely and accurate reports by departments should be raised to a felony and just watch compliance go to 100%

    In the past, law enforcement in Missouri would just make up a drug case and imprison anyone who would “rock the boat”. Keep hammering those thieving sob’s!
