KENAI, Alaska (AP) - A citizens group has submitted a petition for a ballot initiative that would ban all commercial marijuana operations outside cities in the Kenai Peninsula Borough.

The Peninsula Clarion reports (https://bit.ly/2ahtWD4 ) that the borough clerk is working to verify signatures on the petition to be sure the group garnered support from at least 15 percent of the number of voters in the last regular election.

The petition comes after a similar ordinance failed to pass through the borough assembly in April. That ordinance would have posed a ballot question about banning commercial marijuana operations in the borough outside city limits. The assembly considered a similar measure in 2015.
