Marijuana legalization heating up despite petition not receiving enough signatures

A push in the legalization of marijuana faces another hurdle after not submitting enough valid signatures to bring to the Ohio General Assembly

But the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol (CRMLA) says more signatures are coming soon.

The petition fell 13,062 signatures short of the 133,877 needed to head the legislature. Now the CRMLA has until January 13 to submit additional signatures.

“We know that it’s a priority of Democrats in Congress and a priority of the Biden Administration to deschedule marijuana,” Tom Haren, Spokesperson for CRMLA said. “If that happens, that means that it’s descheduled under federal law and it’s automatically descheduled under Ohio law.”
