Nebraska Secretary of State Bob Evnen has approved a medical cannabis legalization measure for the state’s November ballot, according to an AP News report.

Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana submitted enough signatures in July to place the measure before voters this fall, but opponents urged Evnen to reject the proposal, arguing that the measure violates the state constitution.

Evnen said opponents raised “several valid points” about issues with the initiative’s language, AP News reported, but he ultimately decided that the measure met all the necessary legal requirements to go before voters.
