Missouri voters must decide among 3 medical marijuana plans

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Missouri supporters of medical marijuana will have their say in the November election. The only question: Do they cast a yes vote once, twice or three times?

Thanks to successful petition drives for three competing proposals, all three are on the ballot. Two would amend the Missouri Constitution; the other would simply change state law.

What happens if more than one passes? That’s where things get sticky.

According to the Missouri Secretary of State’s office, the constitutional amendments take precedence over the state law proposition. If both constitutional amendments pass, the one with the most “yes” votes takes effect.

But legal experts agree that passage of more than one measure will almost certainly result in a court fight.
