Amendment 3 is Bad for Missouri...
Amendment 3 is a self-funded money-grab from personal injury attorney Brad Bradshaw.
If passed, it would impose the highest tax rate for medical marijuana in the United States, grant regulatory control to Mr. Bradshaw and his self-appointed cronies and open the door for eminent domain abuse.
Amendment 3 is Bad For Missouri
Why Amendment 3 is Bad for Missouri...
SAY NO TO HIGH TAXES
Highest proposed tax in the nation
Amendment 3 taxes patients seeking medical cannabis at the highest level. 7.5x higher than Proposition C and 3.75x higher than Amendment 2. Burdens patients with extremely high costs.
SAY NO TO THE MONEY GRAB
Amendment 3 is funded by a single wealthy backer, Springfield personal injury lawyer Brad Bradshaw.
Bradshaw would have the ability to select the ‘board members’ without approval from the Senate, paying each of them over $180k. This ‘research board’ would have the ability to renew, regulate, restrict, and revoke licenses. Creating another bureaucracy at the sole discretion of one person sets a terrible precedent in our state.
SAY NO TO EMINENT DOMAIN ABUSE
Abuses eminent domain laws
Amendment 3 directly threatens private property owners by abusing eminent domain laws for this dubious research campus.
Language from Section 6:
“The Land Acquisition Board may use any and all legal means to acquire and purchase such property for the campus.”
SAY NO TO RIDICULOUS BUREAUCRACY
Research facility up to 36 miles long or as big as 600 football fields?!
The Amendment states that:
“thirty six contiguous miles being the maximum that could be purchased for campus development, determined by the Land Acquisition Board (which doesn’t exist)”
This equals over 23,000 acres which is 600x larger than Arrowhead Stadium, 18x the size of Forest Park, and half the size of Lake of the Ozarks.
