Nebraska activists have already begun printing petitions for a measure to put medical marijuana on the state ballot in 2022.
While¬†the¬†campaign¬†garnered¬†enough¬†signatures¬†to¬†qualify¬†a¬†reform¬†initiative¬†this¬†year,¬†the¬†state¬†Supreme¬†Court¬†closed¬†it¬†after¬†a¬†trial.¬†He¬†determined¬†that¬†the¬†measure¬†violated¬†the¬†state’s¬†single¬†entity¬†rule,¬†much¬†to¬†the¬†dismay¬†of¬†defenders.
The¬†secretary¬†of¬†state’s¬†office¬†rejected¬†an¬†argument¬†that¬†was¬†filed¬†by¬†the¬†local¬†sheriff,¬†but¬†after¬†the¬†case¬†went¬†to¬†court,¬†a¬†majority¬†of¬†the¬†judges¬†ultimately¬†ruled¬†that¬†the¬†proposal¬†would¬†be¬†withdrawn¬†from¬†the¬†vote.
There are no regulatory details about the structure of what might be a legal market for medical cannabis, although activists have said they could file separate measures with these details. They announced for the first time last month that they plan to submit a new medical cannabis vote initiative for 2022.
Be¬†that¬†as¬†it¬†may,¬†last¬†year¬†the¬†Nebraska¬†attorney¬†general¬†warned¬†that¬†efforts¬†for¬†¬†medical¬†marijuana¬†legalization¬†in¬†the¬†state¬†would¬†be¬†prevented¬†by¬†federal¬†law¬†and¬†“therefore¬†unconstitutional.”
