Supporters of Legalizing Recreational Marijuana Renew Petition Efforts


(AP) — Proponents of legalizing recreational marijuana in North Dakota are planning another attempt to get the issue to voters.

Dave Owens, of Grand Forks, says they’re finalizing a draft of a proposal to be filed with the Secretary of State’s office this fall. Once the petition is approved, signatures for a ballot measure can be gathered in advance of a possible 2018 ballot question.

Supporters of legalizing marijuana fell short on petition signatures in 2016. Owens says the recent passage of medical marijuana in North Dakota, the time is right for legalizing the drug for recreational use.

Owens says a core group of supporters is working with lawyers to make sure the petition is legally sound.
