Signatures Submitted to Place Medical Cannabis Legalization Initiative on Missouri Ballot

namNew Approach Missouri has submitted roughly 260,000 signatures on their initiative to legalize medical cannabis, well more than the 167,000 needed to place the measure on this November’s general election ballot.

Under the proposed law, the medical use of cannabis would be legal for those with a variety of conditions – such as cancer, epilepsy, PTSD and migraines – given they receive a recommendation from a physician. Patients would be allowed to possess at least up to six ounces of cannabis (more if suggest by a physician), and cultivate up to six cannabis plants. The measure would also legalize state-licensed cannabis cultivation centers and dispensaries.
