The Idaho Medical Marijuana Initiative will not appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Idaho as an initiated state statute. The measure would have established a medical marijuana program for qualified patients and caregivers and protects them from criminal prosecution.[1]

Path to the ballot

Initiative supporters needed to collect at least 53,751 valid signatures from registered voters by May 1, 2014 in order to place the initiated state statute on the ballot. This would have been equivalent to 6% of the qualified electors of the state at the time of the last general election.

In February 2014, proponents had 206 valid signatures. This is 0.4% of the amount they need to collect. Kendall Jeffs of Compassionate Idaho said, "Unless a miracle happens, we aren’t getting this ballot out in front of the people in 2014."[4]

Supporters only turned in 559 signatures and therefore the measure did not make the ballot.[5]
