First marijuana legalization ballot measure set for 2016, advocates say

Published on Apr 1, 2015

Marijuana advocates in Nevada say the state will see recreational marijuana legalization on the 2016 ballot and voters will have the power to make the difference. The Marijuana Policy Project helped raise nearly double the amount of signatures needed to make the ballot.The MPP was helpful in several other legalization efforts in Colorado and Alaska, and plans to move forward with other legalization initiatives in Arizona, California, Maine, Massechusetts and more by 2017.

“Voters will have the opportunity to end marijuana prohibition next year and replace it with a policy that actually makes sense,” Mason Tvert, communications director for the group, said in a statement.
