Marijuana helped his stepmom, so Nicholas ‘Turbo’ Raines wants it to help others

Last month, Nicholas “Turbo” Raines, 38, of Kansas City was elected president of the Kansas City chapter of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws. Raines and KC NORML support Missouri HJR 86, an amendment that calls for total legalization of marijuana, subject to voter approval. Raines also supports a Senate bill that would legalize medical use of the drug.
