SB 1150, the bill that would ban out-of-state signature gathering for citizen initiatives in Idaho, is dead for this legislative session.

Late Monday evening, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the SAFE Banking Act with the two-thirds majority needed by a vote of 321–101.
“This was a very difficult vote for me. I knew I would have people that vastly disagreed with me no matter how I voted.”
Idaho is alone as the only state where the possession of any kind of marijuana (even hemp) by any person (even sick people) at any time (even a first offense) without a state card or hemp license, is a misdemeanor crime.
Hemp is still illegal to possess, cultivate, transport, and use in the state of Idaho… if you lack a hemp license.
Our 4/20 starts bright and early this year! Prior to emceeing our 4/20 Rally at the Capitol, our spokesperson, Russ Belville, will be appearing in studio live on The Kevin Miller Show.
A new survey released by the Pew Research Center shows just eight percent (8%) of the American public support keeping marijuana absolutely illegal like Idaho does.
That’s right, Idaho is buying ten percent of all Oregon’s legal marijuana. Oregon gets all the marijuana tax money from Idaho’s marijuana smoking.
Idaho Gov. Brad little this morning signed SB 1110, the bill that immediately increases signature gathering requirements for initiative petitions, including the already-circulating Idaho Medical Marijuana Act.
“I think that the people of Idaho would want to bring that tax money back,” said Belville. “They are bringing that marijuana back you might as well have that tax money.”
It would seem that Idaho Citizens Coalition’s talking points made it to the minds of some of the Republican legislators who voted “no.” A few of them were even echoed by the legislators in the debate.
Rep. Mike Kinglsey’s statements in opposition to HJR 4 deserve a round of applause.
