Madison mayor Mary Hawkins Butler , Tuesday challenged the petition process that put one of two medical cannabis proposals on the Mississippi statewide ballot, arguing that the number of signatures gathered does not meet standards set in the state constitution.
Hawkins Butler has filed papers with the state’s Supreme Court just one week before the Nov. 3 election, more than a month after the start of absentee voting in Mississippi and several months after the secretary of state’s office said the initiative qualified for the ballot.
