Pot petitions will be present at coast parades

At some of Saturday's Mardi Gras parades, volunteers who are pushing for Proposition 48 will be collecting petition signatures and registering voters. That group believes it's time Mississippi make marijuana legal. 

The next step in that effort is to get enough people to sign petitions, so the marijuana issue is placed on 2016 ballots. 

According to the Mississippi Alliance for Cannabis, the constitutional amendment would legalize the use, cultivation, and sale of cannabis and industrial hemp for persons over 21 years of age.
