Kansas City, Mo. – Rapper, actor and entrepreneur Snoop Dogg is getting involved in Missouri politics, especially the 3rd Amendment.
Missouri voters will go to the polls on November 8, to decide whether marijuana should be legal for anyone 21 and older.
Snoop Dogg posted his picture Instagram account to his 77 million followers educating them that “On November 8, voters in 5 states can end the prohibition of marijuana.”
Along with the Show-Me States, voters in Arkansas, Maryland, North Dakota, and South Dakota will decide whether marijuana should be legalized.
The District of Columbia and 19 other states have legalized marijuana.
Snoop Dogg is an outspoken proponent of marijuana. He announced a line of cannabis called Leaves by Snoop in 2015. He also collaborated with TSUMo Snacks earlier this year on a cannabis-infused edible called Snazzie Os.
The rapper also made headlines in June when he gave his full-time personal blunt roller rise due to rising inflation.
Snoop supports the decision to legalize marijuana. There are many Missourians who agree with him, but answering the amendment is not the right way to do it. Some say they don’t believe the issue should be part of the state constitution and have other issues with the proposal.
If passed on Nov. 8, medical marijuana dispensaries, cultivation facilities, and manufacturing licensees will first be given the opportunity to apply for a comprehensive license to sell both medical and recreational marijuana; after that, the lottery system will be used for an additional 144 micro-licenses.
The referendum will allow people 21 and older to have up to three ounces of marijuana and to have up to six flowering plants, six clones, and six seeds. It would also eliminate non-violent offenses.
If Amendment 3 passes, Missouri residents will be able to legally purchase recreational marijuana as soon as February 2023, according to the Department of Health and Senior Services.
