Cannabis Law: Mississippi Supreme Court Overrules Medical Marijuana
On May 14, 2021, the Mississippi Supreme Court overruled the voter-led Initiative 65 Medical Marijuana Program. The vote was 6-3.
While the Mississippi Supreme Court struck down Initiative 65, the battle for medical marijuana in Mississippi is not over. The citizens remain overwhelmingly supportive of providing medical marijuana to individuals with debilitating medical conditions. Moreover, the Mississippi Supreme Court struck down Initiative 65 based on a technicality of receiving signatures, but it did not find medical marijuana in itself unconstitutional. We will continue to work toward achieving a successful medical marijuana program in Mississippi. Do not give up!
