will not appear on a ballot
Attorney Dan Viets of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) filed ten initiative measures for public comment with the Office of the Secretary of State. He said all ten were basically the same, but differed in the number of marijuana plants someone can grow or the quantity of processed marijuana one can possess.
The State Director of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), Dan Viets, filed the initiatives petitions.
Path to the ballot
The supporting group had until May 4, 2014 to turn in the required amount of valid signatures. Missouri law states that signatures for initiated state statutes must be obtained from registered voters equal to five percent of the total votes cast in the 2012 governor's election from six of the state's eight congressional districts. This amounts to a minimum of 98,618 valid signatures, depending on which districts signatures are gathered from.
