A marijuana legalization effort in Ohio has cleared a key governmental hurdle.
Attorney General Mike DeWine on Friday certified ResponsibleOhio’s petition for the proposed amendment and cleared summary petition language as fair and truthful. The measure goes next to the Ohio Ballot Board.
ResponsibleOhio foresees getting the amendment before voters this year or next. It would legalize the sale of marijuana for medicinal and recreational use and create authorized growing sites across the state.
