Second try group pushing to legalize Cannabis Marijuana submits new amendment
COLUMBUS, Ohio — A group pushing to legalize marijuana in Ohio has filed a new version of a proposed constitutional amendment it is trying to get on the ballot.
Attorney General Mike DeWine had rejected the first version filed by the group ResponsibleOhio because of problems with its summary.
The group on Tuesday filed the new language with the state. ResponsibleOhio spokeswoman Lydia Bolander says it addresses the issues DeWine had cited.
The amendment calls for adults 21 and over to be able to buy marijuana for recreational and medicinal use, and to grow up to four plants at home. It also proposes 10 commercial grow sites around the state.
Backers of the amendment plan to spend millions to gather the necessary signatures to put it on the ballot and campaign for passage.
