Show Me Cannabis organizers say an internal survey shows that just 45 percent of likely voters support legal pot, with 51 percent opposed. The group had submitted 10 different legalization proposals to the Missouri secretary of state's office but hoped for voter approval ratings of at least 60 percent.

Executive director John Payne says the cannabis group plans to focus its immediate efforts on proposed legislation reducing Missouri's criminal penalties for marijuana possession. He's also concerned that voter turnout could be low in November, when the job of state auditor is the only statewide office on the ballot.
