Idaho Activists Push to get Marijuana Decriminalization on 2022 Ballot

Idaho activists are pushing to get a measure that would decriminalize the possession of up to 3 ounces of marijuana on the November 2022 ballot in a campaign calling for Idaho to “legalize the drive”.

The measure would make it legal for Idahoans to cross the border into Oregon or Washington to purchase legal marijuana from dispensaries in those states and bring it back for use on private property, according to the Idaho Citizens Coalition.

If passed, the Personal Adult Marijuana Decriminalization Act would only protect adults 21 and older from search, seizure and arrest for the possession and use of up to 3 ounces of marijuana on private property with the permission of the property’s owner.

The proposed law also would protect adults while transporting the marijuana they have purchased legally out-of-state from the store to their private property.

Idaho Citizens Coalition turned in the initial 20 signatures of registered Idaho voters to begin the process of placing the marijuana decriminalization measure on the November 2022 ballot, the group said in a news release.

The Personal Adult Marijuana Decriminalization Act would not address marijuana possession outside the scope of personal use of private property, the coalition said. Possession of marijuana would still be treated as a criminal misdemeanor. [Read more at Idaho Press]
