News » Missouri Proposes Marijuana Legalization

November 8, 2011 by

Marijuana legalization advocates won approval for two ballot measures that would legalize cannabis in Missouri. The secretary of state said that the petitions have been approved and should they receive enough signatures, will appear on the 2012 ballot.

The primary difference in between the two proposal is that one would amend the state constitution to legalize marijuana for people 21 and old. The second would accomplish the same thing, but with a state law instead of constitutional amendment. A $100 per pound tax is included to help boost state revenues.
