Missouri to Vote on Legalized Recreational Marijuana in November

Marijuana Hand

Missouri voters will get to decide in November whether to legalize recreational marijuana for those 21 and older. Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft announced Tuesday that the initiative petition had gathered enough signatures in the six congressional districts, despite earlier reports that the measure had fallen short in two of the districts. The constitutional amendment will be listed on the ballot as Amendment 3, and if approved, would make Missouri the 20th state to legalize recreational marijuana. The amendment would cap the number of licenses given to microbusiness facilities, dispensaries, and wholesale facilities in each congressional district, and place a 6% sales tax on marijuana. The amendment would also expunge nonviolent marijuana offenses from criminal records.
