ND-Marijuana Rec Use Rejected

ND-Marijuana Rec Use Rejected

North Dakotans reject recreational use of marijuana


The Associated Press - November 7, 2018

BISMARCK. N.D. - North Dakota voters have rejected a ballot measure that would have legalized recreational marijuana.

The measure defeated Tuesday would have made it legal for people 21 and older to grow, possess and distribute marijuana.

It also would have wiped away the records of anyone convicted of a marijuana-related crime that would have been legal under the new measure. That would have included tens of thousands of criminal records, and the attorney general's office says it would have been expensive.

Opponents argued that legalizing marijuana would lead to a rise in violent crimes, impaired-driving fatalities and workplace problems. Supporters argued that legalizing pot would free up law enforcement to tackle more serious crimes.

Nine states and Washington, D.C., have legalized recreational marijuana. North Dakota voters in 2016 legalized medical marijuana.
