Revision as of 18:15, 6 January 2014

The Missouri Marijuana Legalization Initiative may appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Missouri as an initiated state statute. The measure would legalize the production, distribution, sale, possession and consumption of marijuana for people aged twenty-one or older and the manufacture of hemp-based commodities.[1]

Attorney Dan Viets of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) has filed ten initiative measures for public comment with the Office of the Secretary of State. He said all ten are basically the same, but differ in the number of marijuana plants someone can grow or the quantity of processed marijuana one can possess.[2]

Support

The State Director of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), Dan Viets, filed the initiatives petitions.[3]

Path to the ballot

The supporting group has until May 4, 2014 to turn in the required amount of valid signatures. Missouri law states that signatures must be obtained from registered voters equal to eight percent of the total votes cast in the 2012 governor's election from six of the state's eight congressional districts.
