Initiative 65 Medical Marijuana Mississippi

Medical Marijuana 2020 led Mississippi on Initiative 65

It’s hard to make laws. It’s even harder to change 90 years of prohibition and reefer madness dogmas that have incarcerated more people than any other war America has waged. Without the leadership of group Medical Marijuana 2020, Mississippi would not have been able to end the decades of legislative quagmires.

Elevate Holistics would like to thank the voters of Mississippi and especially the leadership board at Medical Marijuana 2020!

When will medical marijuana be available in Mississippi?

With the passage of Initiative 65, the legislators must now create a new regulative and licensing body and procedures. This is expected to launch in August 2021.
