Ohio marijuana legalization petition certified

Posted: Updated:

A state board has certified a petition for a proposed initiative to legalize recreational marijuana in Ohio.

The Ohio Ballot Board certified a proposed constitutional amendment for marijuana rights and regulations as a single ballot issue on Thursday.

This initiative would allow those in Ohio who are 21 and older to possess, grow, use, sell and share marijuana.

According to a release, petitioners will now need to collect 305,591 valid signatures to push this issue before voters.

Organizers are trying to get this on the ballot for 2019.
