JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Missourians could be voting on a medical marijuana proposal in two years, if a Columbia marijuana reform advocate is successful.

Columbia attorney Dan Viets tells Missourinet he hopes to get a medical marijuana proposal on the statewide ballot in 2018.

Viets says the Missouri Legislature is never going to pass what he calls a “good” medical marijuana law. “I doubt they’re (the Legislature) going to pass any kind of medical marijuana law. We’re not counting on that at all,” Viets says. “We are looking to the voters of this state to reform the medical marijuana laws. We hope to have a good medical marijuana proposal on the ballot here in November of 2018.”
