Medical marijuana measure won’t appear on ballot

A ballot measure aimed at legalizing possession and use of small amounts of marijuana for medical use will not appear on the November ballot, Secretary of State Shantel Krebs said Friday.

In a statement, Krebs said a challenge to the number of valid petition signatures submitted with the measure was unsuccessful and it didn’t have enough to meet the 13,871 signatures needed to appear on the ballot.

The failed attempt to challenge Krebs’ count is one in a series of unsuccessful attempts this year to legalize medical marijuana.
