Ohio Could Become The 5th To Legalize Recreational Marijuana

Instead, the residents of Ohio will be casting their vote this November to decide if they want to become the fifth state to legalize recreational marijuana.

ResponsibleOhio, the legalization group responsible for gathering enough signatures to put a marijuana legalization proposal on the upcoming ballot, collected 320,267 signatures, which was almost 15,000 signatures more than what was required by law to get the amendment to the Ohio Constitution on the ballot.

What Ohio consumers should know is the proposal would allow adults age 21 and over to purchase up to one ounce of marijuana, it would require growers to obtain a license, and would allow those growers to have four plants and eight ounces of marijuana.
