Lawsuit seeks to snub out medical cannabis measures from November ballot

An organizer of a medical cannabis petition is suing to remove two competing medical cannabis petitions from the November ballot, the Joplin Globe reports.

Brad Bradshaw, a Springfield doctor and attorney, argues in his suits that one campaign collected signatures unlawfully and the other failed to collect enough signatures.

Bradshaw said that New Approach Missouri collected its signatures unlawfully, while the second initiative — which was submitted by Lowell Pearson, a Jefferson City attorney — submitted invalid signatures.

Jack Cardetti, a spokesman for New Approach, told the Joplin Globe that Bradshaw was making “desperate claims” in an effort to make his petition the only one on the ballot.
