Medical Marijuana Amendment Could Be On 2016 Ohio Ballot

OHIO: A Washington D.C.-based organization wants to put a medical marijuana amendment on Ohio’s November ballot.

Marijuana Policy Project, founded in 1995, plans to propose a constitutional amendment that would create a medical marijuana system similar to those states that have already legalized medical marijuana.

The group has led several successful marijuana advocacy efforts in Michigan, Montana and Arizona. The organization also works with state legislatures to improve medical marijuana laws.

“It’s really about time,” said Mason Tvert, a spokesperson for MPP. “We just can’t wait any longer.”
