David Owens, the chairman of Legalize ND in North Dakota, has said that the group is committed to trying to pass a recreational marijuana bill in the state in 2020.
According to Owens, the group is “100 percent” going to try again in 2020. It was earlier this month that the measure had failed by a 59% to 41% margin.
Owens has said that North Dakota attorneys will write the new proposed language fro the ballot measure and what will be different will be provisions for tax revenue from sales and limits on ho wmuch marijuana and individual can grow or possess.
“It’ll be a more traditional legalization bill,” said Owens, who doesn’t smoke marijuana himself.
“As long as we can keep people out of prison for marijuana and allow people to have theirs for their medicine, I’m all for it.” said Owen.
