Tonya Davis, a Kettering resident and member of the petitioning committee for Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis, said the group will keep at it.
“All I can say is we will continue to try,” she said. “…It’s still not bad for our first attempt.”
If DeWine were to approve the proposed amendment’s language, Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis would still need to gather about 385,000 valid signatures from registered voters, among other requirements, before making it onto the ballot.
The End Ohio Cannabis Prohibition Act of 2012 is one of multiple marijuana legalization measures currently in the air. DeWine last May certified the language for the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment, a different proposal backed by a group of advocates called the Ohio Rights Group.
