The ballot initiative, "Nebraskans for Sensible Marijuana Laws," kicked off in Omaha on Thursday night. Supporters hope to get 130,000 signatures to put medical marijuana legalization before voters in 2020.
Sen. Anna Wishart and Sen. Adam Morfeld are leading the charge. Whether lawmakers pass it or voters approve it, Wishart said Nebraskans want medical marijuana.
"I believe over 70 percent of Nebraskans support this issue," Wishart said. "We have pretty recent polling that shows that number."
