LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – A ballot campaign seeking to legalize medical marijuana in Nebraska has announced new support from a group led by a former state senator, as well as a firm that helps pass statewide ballot measures.

Nebraskans for Medical Marijuana says it is working with ADOPT, a coalition led by former state Sen. Tommy Garrett of Bellevue. Garrett is an outspoken supporter of medical marijuana, and previously introduced legalization bills in the Legislature.

The campaign says it has also hired 1st Tuesday Campaigns, a national group based in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles that has worked with ballot campaigns in other states.
