Voters set to decide fate of medical marijuana

If voters approve one of the measures Missouri will become the 32nd state to pass medical marijuana.

Posted: Nov 6, 2018 9:59 AM

Missouri voters will be deciding the fate of not one, but three, medical marijuana issues on the ballot Tuesday.

All three would make growing, selling and using medical marijuana legal in the state.

Amendment 2 would tax marijuana at 4 percent while Proposition C would tax it at 2 percent. Each measure also has a different proposed revenue use. However, Amendment 2 would go into the constitution while Proposition C would be a state law and could be overturned or changed by lawmakers.

Along with Amendment 2 and Proposition C, Amendment 3 would also legalize medical marijuana but it would also create an institute that would be headed by Springfield lawyer and doctor Brad Bradshaw, who also wrote the amendment.

The measure with the most votes will be the one that passes.

If voters approve one of the measures Missouri will become the 32nd state to pass medical marijuana.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
