Have there been any atttempts to legalize recreational marijuana in Ohio?
Yes, there has been at least one attempt at legalizing recreational marijuana.
In August 2021, a coalition of Ohio medical marijuana dispensaries filed a petition for a ballot initiative to legalize and regulate marijuana like alcohol. As of January 3, 2022, the Ohio Secretary of State notified the organizers that they were approximately 13,000 signatures short. Supporters then submitted an additional 23,000 signatures to make up the difference. If the organizers are able to get sufficient signatures, the initiative would be presented to the Ohio General Assembly. The general assembly would then have 4 months to act on the proposed law. If the general assembly fails to act, the proposal could be placed on the ballot for the 2022 election.
