The Idaho Cannabis Coalition has officially filed a petition with the Idaho Secretary of State’s office, according to a KTV-Boise report Monday.
The proposal, which the group hopes to make into a ballot initiative on the 2020 Idaho ballot, would legalize medical marijuana and industrial hemp in the state.
Once Secretary of State Lawerence Denney reviews the petition, the group can begin collecting signatures.
“The people of Idaho want it, the politicians might not, we don’t care what they say,” said Serra Frank, who spoke to KTVB at a pro-legalization rally in January. “We are the people, this is our Capitol building, we are going to make this happen.”
