North Dakota: Marijuana Initiative Signatures Submitted, Nearly 50% More Than Required for November Ballot

New Economic Frontier, a political committee promoting an initiative to legalize recreational marijuana, has submitted nearly 50% more signatures than required to place the proposal on the November 5 presidential election ballot.

Today, New Economic Frontier submitted over 22,000 signatures for their initiative, far more than the 15,582 required to put the measure to a vote of the people. The initiative will officially be placed on the ballot and given a ballot title once the signatures are verified, a process expected to take a couple of weeks. The state will discard any duplicate signatures or those from unregistered voters in North Dakota.

The proposed initiative would legalize possession for adults 21 and older, allowing up to one ounce of marijuana, four grams of marijuana concentrates, and 1500 milligrams of adult-use cannabinoid products, including 300 milligrams in edible form. It would also permit the personal cultivation of up to three marijuana plants and the purchase of marijuana and marijuana products via licensed retail outlets. Retail outlets would be supplied by licensed growers and processors, and products would be tested by licensed testing labs.

Once the initiative is officially placed on the November ballot, North Dakota will join South Dakota and Florida as states voting for recreational marijuana legalization this November.
