Utah: 2018 Ballot Initiative Gets Green Light to Collect Signatures
Author: Monterey Bud  11/08/2017 - 15:57:00

Jon Huntsman Sr. thinks medical marijuana should be legal in the Beehive State, and 73% of recently surveyed Utahns agreed. 

On Nov. 8, 2018, there’s a good chance the voters of Utah will finally have their voice heard.

Utah medical marijuana advocates on Thursday received the prerequisite nod of approval from Spencer J. Cox and the Lieut. Governor’s office, officially authorizing the Utah Patients Coalition to begin amassing the necessary signatures in support of their 2018 ballot drive to legalize medicinal cannabis. 

The gathering of 113,143 signatures from registered voters is the “stated goal” of the Utah Patient Coalition, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. Should the coalition’s initiative receive the necessary signatures, be placed on the 2018 ballot, and passed by the voters – a restricted number of dispensaries and doctors “would be permitted to prescribe marijuana for certain medical conditions.” 

The initiative disallows smoking your medicine, driving with an elevated THC metabolite level, and of course … medicating/smoking in public.
