Ohio AG certifies medical marijuana language


Published: Fri, March 25, 2016 @ 4:53 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Attorney General Mike DeWine has signed off on petition language for a pro-posed constitutional amendment legalizing the use of medical marijuana in the state.

DeWine’s certification this afternoon was a required first step for Ohioans for Medical Marijuana. Backers next must complete a review by the state Ballot Board before they can begin circulating petitions. Afterward, they will need to collect in excess of 305,000 valid signatures from registered voters to place the issue on the ballot.

The amendment calls for the legalization of medical marijuana for debilitating conditions, including cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, “autism with aggressive or self-injurious behaviors, sickle cell anemia, severe fibromyalgia, spinal cord disease, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury or post-concussion syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease.”
