Better for Ohio stopped the push to get their Legalize Marijuana and Hemp in Ohio Initiative Petition on the 2015 ballot.  See Toledo Blade, Marijuana Group Quits Ballot Bid.  The group said the cost of getting the necessary signatures by July 1 was prohibitive.  Better for Ohio’s amendment allows forty grow-sites to be owned by campaign investors, rather than Responsible Ohio’s ten.

According to the Toledo Blade article, Responsible Ohio claims that they have the necessary signatures to be on the November 2015 ballot.

A third group, Ohioans to End Prohibition, re-filed their proposal for marijuana legalization with the Ohio Attorney General.  Their initial attempt was rejected by the AG because the summary was not a fair and truthful statement of the proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution.  The Cannabis Control Amendment (Resubmission) must be acted upon by the Attorney General by June 18, 2015.  The Cannabis Control Amendment differs from the other two proposal mentioned above because it does not created a limited number of grow-sites that will be owned by certain named individuals.  In other words, this third proposal does not have the “marijuana monopoly” that many have found objectionable.
