Mississippi voters comfortably approved a citizen-led initiative to legalize medical marijuana in the state, despite fears the two-step ballot process might confuse voters.

Voters were first asked whether Mississippi should allow medical marijuana, to which 68 percent said yes. They were then asked whether they prefer the medical marijuana proposal put forward by the coalition of marijuana reform advocates who helped get the legalization question on the ballot in the first place, or a much more restrictive version – Initiative 65A – proposed by the legislature. The citizen-led proposal – Initiative 65 – won with more than 73 percent of the vote.
