This time Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana is opting for a simple, direct approach with a proposed constitutional amendment saying: “Persons in the State of Nebraska shall have the right to cannabis in all its forms for medical purposes.”
The filing comes less than a month after the Nebraska Supreme Court booted the medical marijuana proposal from the 2020 general election ballot. The court majority ruled that the measure violated the Nebraska Constitution’s requirement that petition proposals stick to a single subject.
The new initiative is co-sponsored by State Sens. Anna Wishart and Adam Morfeld, co-chairs of Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana. Barry Rubin, who spearheaded the 2020 signature drive, will run the 2022 initiative signature collection effort.
