Enough Signatures Collected in Nevada to Put Cannabis Legalization to a Vote

The Coalitionnevada to Regulate Marijuana says it’s collected over 170,000 signatures to put their cannabis legalization initiative to a vote in Nevada. The group plans to submit the signature’s to the Clark County Clerk’s office on Wednesday.

Once the clerk’s office verifies that at least 102,000 of the 170,000 signatures are valid (from registered Nevada voters), the proposal will go before the state’s Legislature, which will have the option of passing the measure into law, or sending it to a vote of the people in 2016. If approved into law, the proposal would allow everyone 21 and older in Nevada to possess and use up to an ounce of cannabis, and they’d be able to purchase it from state-licensed cannabis retail outlets.

According to polling released last year by Public Policy Polling, 54% of Nevada voters support legalizing cannabis.

  1. I am for legalizing Marijuana. first I believe it is a natural gift from God above, & 2nd I agree if the $ that is made from it should go to our children’s education or drug help for Ppl who cannot afford help from Meth or Heroin. I jus wouldn’t want GREED to come into play.
    I live in chronic pain daily, & given the choice I would rather take some thing natural/organic to the planet vs man made chemical/toxins that 5-10 yrs down the road you find out those man made meds cause organ failure or heart trouble.
    Thank You Kindly~Blessed B
