(Neb)-Medical Pot Initiative Announced

By: John Axtell Posted at: 12/14/2018 11:39 PM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -  Two Nebraska lawmakers have announced plans to place a medical marijuana legalization measure on the 2020 ballot.

       Senators Anna Wishart and Adam Morfeld, both of Lincoln, announced the formation Thursday of Nebraskans for Sensible Marijuana Laws. They say the campaign will seek a constitutional amendment to give Nebraskans the right to use marijuana for medical purposes.

    The group has received backing from the Marijuana Policy Project, a leading national group that has helped lead five successful marijuana-related ballot measures in Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada and Utah.

    Wishart says the group is assembling a steering committee to represent different stakeholders in Nebraska who will help with the campaign. Morfeld also played a major role in this year's successful ballot campaign to expand Medicaid.
