A coalition aimed at legalizing all marijuana use in Nevada launched a petition drive Tuesday in hopes of collecting more than 100,000 signatures.
State Senator Tick Segerblom and Joe Brezny, the former Republican Senate Caucus executive director, kicked off the drive by being the first to sign the petition. Their goal is to get enough signatures that support ending marijuana prohibition in Nevada. Both men are part of the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol.
Advocates say they’re confident public perception has changed enough to get marijuana legalized.
“These people aren’t potheads. These people are trying to heal themselves,” said Adam Sternberg with Compassion Nevada.
