Two Initiatives Fail to Qualify for the Ballot — 63 Still In Circulation
Measures to require 48-hours prior parental notification if a minor seeks an abortion and to decriminalizes marijuana sales and regulate it like beer or wine failed to submit enough signatures to be placed on the ballot, the Secretary of State reported April 6.
The parental notification measure would have amended the constitution and so required 807,615 valid signatures to make the ballot. The marijuana decriminalization initiative, which proposed noncommercial production of up to 24 flowering pants per household, would have changed state law, requiring 504,760 valid signatures.
Initiatives trying to qualify for the ballot are given 150 days to obtain the necessary signatures.
Time ran out for the parental notification meaure on April 5, the marijuana proposal on April 6.
