Nebraskans Pushing Medical Marijuana Legalization

Nebraskans Pushing Medical Marijuana Legalization

On the heels of South Dakota legalizing medical marijuana, some Nebraskans are pushing for legalization in the Cornhusker state.

Volunteers for Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana fanned out across Cedar County recently gathering signatures for two medical marijuana ballot initiatives.

Nicole Hochstein from Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana says the goal is to allow voters the opportunity to vote on the topic on Election Day 2022…

Last year, the Nebraska Supreme Court struck down a medical marijuana petition spearheaded by the group. Hochstein says the language on this new ballot initiative can withstand any lawsuit…

One ballot measure being circulated currently would protect doctors who prescribe medical cannabis and their patients and the other would require the Legislature to protect producers and suppliers of medical cannabis.
