Lauderdale County passes medical marijuana referendum

LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK) – In Tuesday’s vote, 58 percent of Lauderdale County voters said yes to the sale of medical marijuana outside city limits.

County supervisors waived the election, but citizens received the necessary number of registered voters in a petition to place the issue on the Nov. 8 ballot. At the time, the board noted that there were no regional laws or ordinances in the county that existed outside of state law.

Board Chairman Jonathan Wells said Tuesday’s vote was democracy in action and the people spoke.

The measure passed by a full but unofficial vote of 8,190 to 5,835.
