JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves says he wants legislators to make more changes in a proposal to create a medical marijuana program. The Republican said Monday that he wants tighter limits on the amount of marijuana people could buy.

He also wants to reduce the content of THC, the compound that produces a high. Reeves says he does not want a program that would allow recreational use of the drug. In November 2020, Mississippi voters approved a medical marijuana initiative. State Supreme Court justices overturned the initiative in May, ruling that Mississippi’s initiative process is outdated and unworkable.
