Missouri Group Works On Initiatives For Legal Pot

Missouri voters could decide whether the state will be the first to legalize marijuana

Missouri voters could decide whether the state will be the first to legalize marijuana in all its forms if organizers of a petition drive can collect the necessary signatures over the next 10 months. A group calling itself Show-Me Cannabis, led in part by some of the principal proponents of Columbia’s lenient city marijuana law, turned in two proposals Wednesday to Secretary of State Robin Carnahan’s office. Her office will decide whether it is ready to circulate and, if so, write the summary that will appear on the ballot. The two measures are essentially identical. One would amend state law, and the other would put the legalization language into the Missouri Constitution. Both would legalize marijuana use for medical purposes, allow adults to consume marijuana under restrictions similar to those placed on alcohol and allow users to grow small plots of pot.
