Petition Drive To Make All Forms of Cannabis Legal Hits A Roadblock

Group Behind Effort To Change Constitution Withdraws Petition, Plans To Make Changes

BISMARCK, ND — An effort to change the North Dakota constitution to make the cannabis plant legal has been put on hold.

The group submitted a proposed petition to Secretary of State Al Jaeger on Monday but Tuesday they withdrew it.

Group chairman John Bailey, of Courtenay, says the petition will be resubmitted in about a week after some changes are made.

He would not say what those changes would be.

The group will need to collect about 27,000 signatures to get it on the ballot.

If it’s passed, people in the state will legally be allowed to grow, sell and use marijuana.
