Show-Me Cannabis Submits Proposals To Make Legal Marijuana Your Constitutional Right

MISSOURI: The effort to legalize marijuana in Missouri continues as ten different legalization proposals have been sent to the Secretary of State Jason Kander’s office and are open for public comment.

But these aren’t just changes to laws. They’re changes to the Missouri State Constitution, similar to what Colorado has and done so in a way so no buzz-kill state legislator can try to repeal it.

Each proposal was submitted by attorney Dan Viets, chairman of Show-Me Cannabis, who says the aim of each proposal is to regulate and tax marijuana like alcohol, but they vary in different ways such as the amount of plants one can grow and how legalization would impact people with criminal records for marijuana offenses.

After public comments end on December 19 and Kander’s office writes up the ballot language for the proposals, pro-legalization group Show Me Cannabis Regulation will begin polling Missourians to find out which of the ten proposals has the most support and best chance of passing in 2014.
