Kansas Supreme Court strikes down Wichita marijuana ballot case

Wichita’s marijuana ballot initiative has been struck down by the Kansas Supreme Court.

The case, which pitted the city against the state, hinged on whether the initiative conflicted with statewide laws prohibiting marijuana possession and whether activists complied with the requirements for ballot initiatives.

The court has decided that petitioners did not follow state law in filing the proposed ordinance with the city clerk.

The court did not address the state’s arguments that the proposed ordinance conflicted with statewide marijuana possession laws.
