US (MO): Activists submit double the signatures needed for cannabis legalization ballot initiative

Missouri activists have turned in more than double the number of signatures needed to qualify a cannabis legalization initiative for the November ballot.

As the prospects of enacting reform through the legislature have dwindled in recent days, Legal Missouri 2022 turned in more than 385,000 signatures to the state on Sunday. They need 171,592 of those submissions to be validated in order to put the issue before voters.

Campaign manager John Payne previously led a successful ballot effort to legalize medical cannabis in the Show-Me State in 2018.

“As we submit more than 385,000 petition signatures to the state today, the message from voters is clear: it’s past time to end the senseless and costly prohibition of cannabis,” Payne said in a press release. “This widespread and enthusiastic show of support from the people of Missouri exceeds our expectations.”
