US (NE): Medical cannabis supporters host events to gather signatures

Medical cannabis supporters across Nebraska came together Saturday for over 100 events in 35 counties. It’s all in an effort to get enough signatures to let the voters decide if medical cannabis should be legal. But, there’s still a long road to get there.
 
Up to this point, the efforts to get medical cannabis legalized in Nebraska have all fallen short. “It’s literally been nine years of trying to go down to the legislature to get something done and unfortunately that hasn’t worked. The last petition drive didn’t work as well because the supreme court through the petition out,” said Dominic Gillen.

But the Gillen family and hundreds of other supporters aren’t giving up. They want the people of Nebraska to decide if it should be legalized. Now the goal is to get 250,000 signatures by mid-July in order to get it on November’s ballot.
