Advocates behind an effort to legalize adult-use marijuana submitted additional voter signatures on Thursday to put the proposal before Ohio lawmakers. The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol turned in more than 29,000 signatures after falling short earlier this month. The group submitted over 200,000 signatures as part of the initiated statute process, but only about 119,000 were determined valid. The proposal would allow Ohioans age 21 and older to buy and possess 2.5 ounces of cannabis and 15 grams of concentrates. They could also grow up to six plants individually and no more than 12 in a household with multiple adults. Ohio’s legalization momentum has been building in 2021. Over the past several years, 22 jurisdictions across the state have adopted local statutes to decriminalize cannabis possession.
