Montana To Vote On Legalizing Recreational Marijuana

Initiative 190 and Constitutional Initiative 118 are eligible for Nov’s ballot

A petition in Montana to legalize recreational marijuana for adults 21 and older has qualified for the state ballot in November.

Initiative 190 and Constitutional Initiative 118 will be eligible for state residents to vote on after the campaign New Approach Montana gathered enough signatures, local NBC affiliate KTVH-DT reported Thursday.

“Our research has always shown that a majority of Montanans support legalization, and now voters will have the opportunity to enact that policy, which will create jobs and generate new revenue for our state,” said Pepper Petersen, a campaign spokesperson for the group.

New Approach Montana said it spent around $2 million on the signature drive and collected more than 130,000 signatures from registered voters.

The initiative reportedly required 25,000 verified signatures to qualify, while the constitutional amendment needed around 50,000.
