Yost Rejects Language For Proposed Recreational Marijuana Legalization Ballot Issue
The Ohio Attorney General has rejected petition language for a proposed constitutional amendment to legalize recreational marijuana.
David Yost says the petition fails to include information that's listed in the proposed amendment. The measure titled "An Amendment to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol" would allow people age 21 and over to buy, possess and consume limited amounts and grow up to six plants. Backers want the issue on the November ballot. Recreational marijuana use is currently legal in 11 states.
