Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana said Saturday it is temporarily suspending its petition drive because of the novel coronavirus outbreak.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are following the wider recommendations from public health officials and pausing our volunteer and paid signature gathering efforts within local communities until it is responsible to continue,” the group said in an email sent to supporters.

The group, which is seeking to legalize marijuana for medical use through a ballot initiative, said it’s developing a plan for the campaign to stay active and for volunteers to remain engaged.
