North Dakota Recreational Legalization Initiative on the November Ballot
Michigan, Utah and Missouri all have marijuana-law reform initiatives on the ballot in November. North Dakota just joined them.
On Aug. 13, North Dakota’s Secretary of State Alvin Jaeger approved the North Dakota Marijuana Legalization Initiative for the Nov. 6 ballot. On July 9, Legalize ND submitted 17,695 signatures (4,500 more than required). Jaeger accepted 14,637.
The measure is purposefully vague; it doesn’t call for specific amounts that would be legal or how to create a commercial market for cultivation, processing, testing and sales. That’ll be up to the legislature, says Legalize ND’s Cole Haymond:
“This bill is by far the most progressive yet most conservative marijuana legalization bill that will be on any ballot across the country. We leave our bill wide open so the legislature can do their job—regulations, taxes, zoning, whatever.”
