This joint resolution proposes an amendment to the Idaho State Constitution that would prohibit the production, manufacture, transportation, sale, or delivery of "psychoactive drugs" unless the drug is:
- approved by the FDA
- lawfully prescribed
- lawfully dispensed
Because this is a constitutional amendment, the question would be put to Idaho voters in the next general election. If passed, the amendment would effectively close the door for marijuana legalization via ballot initiative. After an election year where numerous states legalized marijuana, or in some cases decriminalized drugs via ballot initiative, this amendment attempts to cleverly stifle citizens' ability to pursue that objective here in Idaho.
