Missouri Legalizes Medical Marijuana With Passage of Amendment 2

Missouri voters approved Amendment 2—one of the three medical marijuana ballot initiatives in the state—in the midterm election by a 65-34 margin with 95 percent of precincts reporting on Nov. 7, according to Ballotpedia . “Thanks to the unflagging efforts of patients and advocates, Missourians who could benefit from medical marijuana will soon be able to use it without fear of being treated like criminals,” said Matthew Schweich, deputy director of the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) , in a public statement. “We hope lawmakers will implement the measure efficiently and effectively to ensure qualified patients can gain access to their medicine as soon as possible.” “Amendment 2 passing is a major win for Missouri patients and the cannabis movement as a whole,” added Jeffery M. Zucker, president and co-founder of Green Lion Partners .
