COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The marijuana legalization movement has arrived in Ohio with high-flying ambitions: Making Ohio the first state to move from a complete ban to complete legalization with a single vote.
ResponsibleOhio is one of two competing legalization campaigns pushing forward in the state.
It released further elements of its plan this week. It has stopped short so far of unveiling the legal technicalities of a ballot measure planned for November.
Opponents call the lack of specifics shady and insulting to Ohio voters.
Supporters envision a network of growers sending the product to at least five testing facilities near Ohio colleges and universities for safety and potency screenings.
The pot would then go to either not-for-profit medical marijuana dispensaries, retail outlets or to be infused into various consumer products.
