FARGO — The group promoting the legalization of recreational marijuana in North Dakota has released its new version of a ballot measure they hope to put to voters in the fall of 2020.

David Owen, leader of Legalize ND and Grand Forks resident, said the measure addresses some of the concerns their group heard after the 2018 measure was defeated by state voters by a 59 percent to 41 percent margin.
