NE Medical Marijuana Campaign takes new approach in 2022 ballot

The Nebraska Medical Marijuana Campaign is announcing a new approach to their 2022 ballot initiative.

Wednesday the group of Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana filed two separate petitions. 

One has wording that outlines patients' and caregivers' rights and their protections to have conversations and access to medical marijuana through a licensed doctor. The other will tackle the guidelines for production and distribution in the state. 

The group said it's taken months to consult with local and national legal teams to get the wording solidified so they don't have a repeat of 2020. 

They've filed the two petitions with the Secretary of State's office. From there they will either be approved or the state office will offer revisions. 

Organizers hope to start circulating those petitions for signatures by October.
