If approved into law this November, Amendment 2 would legalize the possession of up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis for those with a qualifying medical condition such as cancer, glaucoma or chronic pain. The proposal would authorize state-licensed dispensaries to distribute cannabis to patients.
Given that the proposal is a constitutional amendment, it will require 60% of the vote to pass into law.
According to recent polling, this should definitely be doable.
The initiative was put forth by the organization United for Care, which is headed by attorney John Morgan, a former fundraiser for President Obama who has vowed to spend “whatever it takes” to get his initiative passed.
