Idaho activists have filed a new measure to legalize marijuana possession for adults that they hope to place before voters on the 2022 ballot. Meanwhile, a separate campaign to legalize medical cannabis in the state is also underway, with advocates actively collecting signatures to qualify that measure. Activists turned in the requisite 20 signatures needed to initiate the ballot process for the new limited recreational legalization proposal on Thursday. It would make it so possession of up to three ounces of marijuana would be lawful on private property for adults 21 and older. Possession outside of a private residence would generally remain criminalized, though the measure specifies that, “transporting a personal amount of marijuana from a jurisdiction where the marijuana was legally purchased” would be legal.
