The organization New Approach Idaho (NAI) has officially kicked off its campaign to legalize cannabis, with the goal of putting an initiative to a vote of the people in 2016.
“Idaho’s current approach to marijuana is outdated and makes criminals out of nonviolent people,” says NAI. “It’s Time for a New Approach!”
The initiative is expected to be modeled after Colorado’s successful cannabis legalization initiative, Amendment 64, which legalized the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis and the private cultivation of up to six plants, while also authorizing state-licensed cannabis retail outlets.
“If we regulate it, then much of it will be off the streets,” says Bill Esbensen, a member of NAI. “Prohibition has failed.”
The group’s first volunteer meeting is scheduled for Friday, December 5th; more information on this meeting can be found by clicking here.
