Medical Marijuana is Not Yet Legal in Nebraska
Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana Leads Effort to Gather Signatures for Medical Marijuana Ballot Initiative
Last update: January 13, 2020Despite pleas from patients and families all across the state, Nebraska’s unicameral legislature adjourned last year without taking action on legislation (LB 110) sponsored by Sen. Anna Wishart, which would have created a sensible and compassionate medical marijuana program in the state. Despite this disappointing result, patients and allies are looking forward to November, as a campaign aims to put the issue directly to voters later this year. Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana is working to collect roughly 130,000 voter signatures by July to qualify its constitutional medical marijuana initiative for the 2020 ballot. The proposal would establish legal protections for patients who receive a recommendation from their healthcare provider to treat a debilitating condition with medical marijuana. It would also establish a foundation for the state to regulate a market of medical marijuana producers and dispensaries.
