Ohio Takes First Step Towards Legalizing Medical Marijuana

Efforts to legalize medical marijuana in Ohio are moving ahead, with a group submitting signatures to Attorney General Mike DeWine‘s office. And that could launch the petition collection process in time for the November 2012 ballot, the Associated Press reports.

The proposed “Ohio Alternative Treatment Amendment” would amend the state constitution to allow caregivers to give patients with qualifying ailments up to 3.5 ounces of medical marijuana.

Backers of the measure last week submitted a petition that summarized that amendment with 2,143 signatures to Attorney General Mike DeWine.  Secretary of State Jon Husted, Ohio’s top elections official, said the next step in the process is validating 1,000 signatures and passing the language of the petition in a review process. If the proposal makes it through the review process, its supporters will need to collect at least another 385,245 valid signatures to win the amendment a spot on the ballot next year.
