Ohio to Become Possible Medical Marijuana State
Published on Jan 26, 2012
The state of Ohio could be the newest state to join the medical marijuana movement. If supporters can gather 385,000+ signatures the proposed measure will be on the November ballot.
Supporters of the proposed constitutional amendments must gather the signatures of at least 385,245 registered voters in order to qualify for the ballot.
Theresa Daniello, a spokesperson for the proposed Ohio Medical Cannabis Amendment, approved by the ballot board this week, said they are confident they will be able to gather the necessary signature. Daniello said polls have shown Ohioans overwhelmingly support the idea of medical marijuana.
The Alternative Treatment Amendment was approved by the Ohio Ballot Board in October and is supported by the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
