North Dakota petition pushes pot legalization

Christopher Ingraham

Supporters of marijuana legalization in North Dakota have submitted more than 18,000 signatures to the secretary of state in support of a measure that would fully legalize the drug, well above the 13,452 signatures required to put the question on the November ballot.

Like a recent successful medical marijuana measure in Oklahoma, the effort has largely flown under the radar, with no financial backing from national drug policy groups such as the Drug Policy Alliance and the Marijuana Policy Project. And like in Oklahoma, North Dakota is a deep red state that hasn’t voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1964.
