A petition for a proposed ballot measure that would legalize marijuana in North Dakota was submitted Wednesday to the secretary of state’s office.

Andrew Sadek's parents push for end to use of college students as informants

ROGERS, N.D. — Tammy and John Sadek raise cattle on the green slopes above Lake Ashtabula. On their ranch, early summer days bring the hard work of cutting hay, a job their 20-year-old son, Andrew, used to help with.

"He was my right hand as far as getting chores done," John Sadek said. "He was a good worker. Real good."

It's this memory of a son, who planned to carry the tradition of a ranch kept in the family since the 1930s, that makes this time of year hard to bear, despite crisp prairie skies and sun glittering on the dark blue lake.
