Over the last few weeks since Governor Tate Reeves signed the Mississippi Medical Cannabis Act of 2022 into law, multiple cities across the state have chosen to opt out of the new medical marijuana program.
The bill was signed into law on February 2 and allows cities three months to make a decision on if they want to partake in the program.
Here is the current list of Mississippi cities that have chosen to opt out:
- Pass Christian
If citizens of the above cities wish to overrule the decision, they can petition for an election to have it reversed. The petition must include signatures of either 20% of the population or 1,500 people, whichever is less depending on the city.
