Nearly every day, Crystal Quade is somewhere in Missouri knocking on doors.

As Democratic leader in the Missouri House, Quade is hoping to help her party put a dent in the GOP supermajority that’s dominated the state legislature for more than a decade.

And when she heard the news earlier this month that a proposed constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana would appear on the November ballot, she thought her job might have just gotten a little easier.

“I definitely think that it will bring out more voters,” Quade said of the marijuana proposal, which will appear on the ballot as Amendment 3. ”It will bring out younger voters, and traditionally, younger voters tend to vote Democratic. So that is looking like good news for us.”

But asked what she thinks of the policy laid out in Amendment 3, Quade’s enthusiasm dims.

“I’m in support of legalization,” she said. “I wish the initiative was better, but it is what we’re given to work with right now.”

Quade has concerns about the expungement provisions laid out in the amendment, as well as the fact that it will continue to allow the state to cap business licenses to grow and sell marijuana — a system she believes led to potential corruption in the medical marijuana program.
