NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A Tennessee lawmaker introduced a bill on July 7 that would put marijuana legalization on the state’s ballot in 2022.
Representative Bruce Griffey (R – District 75) introduced H.B. 1634, which would require county election commissions to include three non-binding questions related to marijuana legalization on the 2022 ballot.
The Secretary of State would then need to compile the results and send the results to the legislature.
The questions would function similarly to a public opinion poll, rather than any binding legal action. The three questions are below:
The Tennessee legislature could then use the results of the questions to guide future decisions. However, they will not be obligated to follow the results of the questions.
