JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Columbia will pay a price for easing restrictions on marijuana prosecutions if one lawmaker gets his way.

Sen. Chuck Gross, a St. Charles Republican, proposed legislation Wednesday that would prohibit public schools from holding athletic tournaments in Columbia.

The legislation by Sen. Chuck Gross, R-St. Charles, would bar schools that receive state money from participating in "sporting events or athletic tournaments" in cities that have soft marijuana laws.
