The Idaho Cannabis Coalition has to obtain 55,000 valid signatures to get their medical marijuana legalization initiative on the 2020 ballots. Those signatures must be from at least 18 of the state’s 35 legislative districts. Previous attempts in the state have failed.
This group says that it won’t accept no for an answer when it comes to legalization, KMTV 11 News reports. Medical marijuana legalization is a very hot topic of discussion. Many believe that prohibition needs to end.
Jason “Dr. Nick Redbone” Ramsey said, “I think that it’s illogical at this point in the 21st century to have prohibition against a plant that can actually help suffering Idahoans right now today.”
Spokesman for the coalition, Russell Belville said, “Under our condition there would be a qualifying condition list that would detail what conditions a doctor could recommend a medical marijuana for treatment, it includes some of the standard things we know like cancer, HIV, AIDS, MS.”
Regarding what the coalition wants to see, Heiner said, “We will get a unanimous vote, we will get 55,000 signatures, and I do firmly believe that this is the year that everything can change.”
