Coronavirus Hits CBD Reform Movement, Missouri Marijuana Legalization Campaign in Peril

The victims of the deadly coronavirus are mounting day by day. This time, coronavirus has hit the marijuana reform movement at Missouri, which is a state in the Midwestern United States. Recently, activists in Missouri declared that their attempt to put a CBD legalization measure on the ballot has “no practical way” to achieve success amid the corona contagion.

In the last couple of weeks, the outburst has caused several business closures and amplified calls for social distancing in states across the country. This situation has made mass signature meetings for drug policy reform measures practically non-viable.

The campaign manager for Missourians for a New Approach, John Payne mentioned,

“Unfortunately, while there is widespread support from Missourians to tax and regulate marijuana, there is currently no practical way during the COVID-19 outbreak to safely, publicly gather the 170,000 plus signatures needed over the remaining 6 weeks to put this on the Missouri ballot in 2020.”

Payne further added that the group is still exploring its options. However, if it eventually cannot find a way to the ballot for this November, their supporters from each bend of the state will be back next cycle to present it on the 2022 ballot and lastly fetch Missouri the benefits of a harmless, adult-use CBD program.
