Missouri voters will have to wait a little longer to decide on a state constitutional amendment to legalize and regulate marijuana.
Show-Me Cannabis Chairman Dan Viets told KRCG 13 that his organization plans to wait for the 2016 Presidential Election.
The group originally planned to put their proposal on this yearâ??s November ballot.
Polling shows Missouriâ??s legalized marijuana law would get better support during the Presidential Election.
Missouriâ??s law would be similar to the one in Colorado that allows the use, sale and cultivation of marijuana.
Columbia State Representative Chris Kelly filed a bill to legalize and tax marijuana in Missouri.
If Kellyâ??s bill becomes law this session, supporters would no longer need to their proposal on the 2016 ballot.
