3 States Will Vote to Legalize Recreational Marijuana this November

Voters in three states will have the opportunity this November to legalize recreational marijuana.

In Florida, voters will consider Amendment 3, the first of the three initiatives to be officially placed on the ballot. The initiative, proposed by Smart & Safe Florida, would legalize the possession, use, and licensed distribution of marijuana for those 21 and older. The possession limit would be set at three ounces of dried marijuana flower and five grams of marijuana concentrates. Amendment 3 would also establish a system of licensed, regulated, and taxed marijuana retail outlets, supplied by licensed growers and processors.

A University of North Florida poll released in November found that 67% of likely voters support Amendment 3, exceeding the 60% needed for it to pass as a constitutional amendment. A recent Fox News poll also indicated strong support at 69%.

By the end of May, the campaign for Amendment 3, Smart & Safe Florida, had raised over $60 million, the highest amount for any statewide marijuana initiative in US history.

In South Dakota, voters will consider Measure 29, proposed by South Dakotans for Better Marijuana Laws. The measure would legalize recreational marijuana for those 21 and older, allowing them to possess up to an ounce of marijuana and cultivate up to three marijuana plants at a private residence. Like Florida’s Amendment 3, the initiative would establish a system of licensed, regulated, and taxed marijuana businesses.

According to polling released last month, a plurality of voters in the state support legalizing marijuana, 45% to 42%.

In North Dakota, New Economic Frontier says they’ve collected more than enough signatures to put their legalization initiative to a vote this November. They plan to officially submit the signatures on Monday, the deadline for doing so.

The initiative would allow those 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana, four grams of marijuana concentrates, and 1,500 milligrams of adult-use cannabinoid products (300 milligrams of which can be in the form of edible products). The initiative would also permit the personal cultivation of up to three marijuana plants and the purchase of marijuana and marijuana products through licensed marijuana stores.
