A medical marijuana legalization initiative will appear on Mississippi’s November ballot is being targeted by two medical associations that are advocating for voters to reject the policy. With a few weeks left until the vote, the Mississippi State Medical Association (MSMA) and American Medical Association (ASA) are circulating a sample ballot that instructs voters on how to reject the measure. For supporters and opponents alike, the way the ballot is structured can be confusing—a product of the legislature approving an alternative that appears alongside Initiative 65. This marks the latest obstacle that reform advocates are facing. Despite polls that show support large support for medical cannabis legalization, opponents aren’t acquiescing to public opinion.
