Recreational Marijuana Petitions Approved for Circulation

The petition will need 13,500 signatures by July 6.

BISMARCK, N.D.–A group seeking to legalize recreational marijuana in North Dakota can begin circulating petitions to try to bring the issue to voters.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger approved the format of the petition on Monday.

LegalizeND would need to gather and submit nearly 13,500 signatures by July 6 to get a proposed measure on the November ballot.

The proposed measure would allow any person over the age of 21 to use, possess, and transport up to 2 ounces of prepared marijuana, but it would ban home growing of the plant.
