Columbus -- A new group today announced plans to place a ballot initiative before Ohioans in 2016 that would fully legalize marijuana. Cleveland-based Ohioans to End Prohibition proposes to allow anyone over the age of 21 to legally grow, purchase, possess and use marijuana while also granting merit-based licenses to commercial growers.Another group, ResponsibleOhio, hopes to place a constitutional amendment on the November ballot that would permit 10 businesses to grow and sell marijuana wholesale for personal and medicinal use by those over age 21.
Both plans would tax marijuana sales to fund government programs.In a swipe at ResponsibleOhio, a statement by Ohioans to End Prohibition said in a statement, “Any amendment that might consolidate the prospective economic power of a legal cannabis market in the hands of a chosen few is a raw deal for the people of Ohio.”The Ohio Rights Group also is working to put an issue on the 2015 ballot to legalize medical marijuana, saying it has collected more than 150,000 signatures on petitions.The pro-pot campaigns would need to collect a minimum 305,591 valid signatures of registered voters to place an initiative on the ballot for a vote.Source: Columbus Dispatch (OH)Author: Randy Ludlow, The Columbus Dispatch Published: January 8, 2015Copyright: 2015 The Columbus DispatchContact: letters dispatch.comWebsite:  -- Cannabis Archives
