Show-Me Cannabis went all-in this year with its attempt to get a marijuana-legalization measure on the ballot for the fall election. Legalize medical marijuana? Pshaw, that's a one-hitter for the statewide marijuana advocacy organization. The ballot initiative they pushed was full-bore pot legalization. "It's going to have to be available to adults 21 and over, period," Amber Langston, the group's western regional director, told The Pitch in the spring. Missourians would even have been able to grow their own private pot garden in their backyards. Alas, it was all for naught. The group tallied 65,000 signatures, falling short of the number needed to get on the ballot. They've vowed to keep up the fight. Until then, smoke 'em if you've got 'em, you filthy criminals.
