Effort To Legalize Marijuana In Ohio Hits Snag

Feb 24, 2015


10TV.com -   COLUMBUS, Ohio - A proposal to legalize marijuana in Ohio has failed to clear an initial state hurdle as its backers seek to put the issue before voters this fall.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine on Monday rejected a petition for the proposed constitutional amendment citing problems with its summary.
The group ResponsibleOhio is pushing to get the constitutional amendment on the November ballot. It would legalize the sale of marijuana for medicinal and recreational use. The proposed amendment calls for 10 grow sites across the state.
Backers plan to spend millions to get it passed.
DeWine said the amendment's summary language omits that the proposal would permit the sharing of specified amounts of marijuana between adults age 21 and older. He also said there were other deficiencies with the summary.
