ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– Over a dozen petitions have been submitted to amend the Missouri State Constitution regarding marijuana.

The petitions relate to production, sales, distribution, and consumption of marijuana and hemp products.

The state would be allowed to establish a tax, and authorize regulations and licensing procedures for pot.

It would also change criminal conditions for pot offenses and allow individuals who have certain marijuana-offenses to apply for their records to be erased.

And they would allow the use of medical marijuana.

Signatures from registered voters have to be obtained before any constitutional changes can be brought before Missouri voters, this November.
