BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Supporters of a North Dakota initiative to allow marijuana use for pain relief want the state Supreme Court to put the measure on the ballot.
An attorney for medical marijuana supporters says Secretary of State Al Jaeger should have done a better review of the initiative petitions.
Jaeger blocked the measure from going on the ballot because of what he said was fraud by some of the petition circulators. They were members of North Dakota State University's football team.
Medical marijuana backers say some of the petition signatures were legitimate and Jaeger didn't try to sort the bad from the good.
They want the Supreme Court to stop printing of the November ballots. Jaeger says the high court hasn't decided whether to hear arguments on the case.
