Recreational Marijuana Makes November Ballot

Marijuana Jar

An initiative petition to legalize recreational marijuana in Missouri will remain on the ballot in November. The Western District Court of Appeals found that the lower court was correct in finding the initiative petition, known as Amendment 3, had a sufficient number of signatures to make the ballot. The court ruled that Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft properly certified the initiative petition and that the petition does not violate the Missouri Constitution’s single-subject rules. The Supreme Court refused to take the case, so the appeals court ruling stands. Sept.13th was the deadline for the courts to determine whether voters will get to decide the issue this November. If passed, Missouri will be the 20th state to legalize marijuana.
