Medical Marijuana Ballot Issues Explained

Missouri voters will have the choice of 3 different medical marijuana issues on their ballot tomorrow. [Tuesday]

Amendment 2 would legalize medical marijuana and impose a 4 percent tax on retail marijuana sales and use the funds for services for veterans.

Amendment 3 would legalize medical marijuana with taxes at 15 percent. The funds would be used to conduct research at a new state institute chaired by Brad Bradshaw of Springfield.

Proposition C would allow medical marijuana with a tax of 2 percent and would not amend the Missouri Constitution. Funds would be spent on Veteran services, drug treatment, early childhood education and public safety.

If Amendment 2 and 3 were to pass, the one with the most votes would go into the constitution.
