KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Missouri officials are trying to put a question on a general election ballot in November that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana for all adults, WDAF reports.
The initiative is being led by Missourians for a New Approach, a coalition which includes many of the same groups who worked to pass a constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana in 2018.
That measure had 66%v approval.
Missourians for a New Approach says that, by 2025, the initiative could produce $93 million to $155 in tax revenue.
They also say that $17 to $27 million could be made for local governments every year.
Missouri has not finished the process of setting up its medical marijuana industry yet.
