Tom Angell asks about the state ballot initiatives for which activists are currently gathering signatures.
- Campaigns to liberalize cannabis or psychdelics laws are on hold or suspended in Missouri, California, Oregon, Nebraska and Washington D.C. Several groups have called for a form of digital signature collecting. So far the states have not obliged.
- Some initiatives have already gathered the necessary signatures or have been cleared for the ballot. They include REC in Arizona, South Dakota and New Jersey and MED in Mississippi and South Dakota.
- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) conceded his hope to legalize REC this year is “effectively over.”
