Ohio Recreational Marijuana Ballot Initiative Rejected by AG

Last week we told you about a new Ohio marijuana legalization ballot initiative that was filed with the Ohio Attorney General’s office.  Yesterday, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost rejected the summary language of the Amendment to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol because the summary was inconsistent with the findings and declarations set forth in Section (A) of the proposed amendment.  The Attorney General found the summary “completely fails to inform a potential signer that the amendment elevates these ‘findings and declarations’ to a constitutional standard.”  The petitioners will need to resubmit the petition if they wish to move forward with the proposed amendment and obtain the requisite number of signatures for the proposed amendment’s inclusion on the November ballot. Bugbee & Conkle attorneys will continue to apprise you of all developments pertaining to the legalization of medical or recreational cannabis in Ohio.
