The signature drive for Nebraska's 2020 medical marijuana ballot initiative is moving full steam ahead. Across the state, Nebraskans are eager to sign the petition to create a constitutional protection for patients who need safe access to medical marijuana.
On May 22, the Lincoln Journal Star published an editorial in support of medical cannabis and chided Nebraska's state legislature for refusing to vote on a bill that would establish a tightly-regulated medical marijuana program.
The Nebraska Legislature recently debated a bill, LB 110, which would establish a tightly-regulated medical cannabis program for the state. The legislative sponsor, Sen. Anna Wishart, needed to win over two-thirds of her colleagues to move the bill forward in face of opposition from Governor Pete Ricketts and was unsuccessful.
