It is our intention to present to the Ohio legislature an amendment to Ohio law, summarized here:
BALLOT SUMMARY: Permits adults to cultivate, possess, use, purchase, display, and transport marijuana and marijuana accessories for personal use for any reason.
We are working under an inflexible timeline, dictated by Ohio State law: An initial written petition, signed by 1000 Ohio registered voters submitted to the Attorney General.
This money will be used to accomplish the initial goals: 1) hire a qualified person (already identified) to write the language of the petition and the summary that appears on the signature petitions; 2) hire a company (already identified) that specializes in obtaining petition signatures.
That means we have about two weeks to raise the money for our petition writer... maybe a bit more, but not much.
THIS EFFORT sponsored by Make A Difference (MAD) Ohio. We believe that if this initiative gets on the ballot for the November 3, 2020 election, a lot of people who might not have bothered to vote, will show up; and with luck, they will turn Ohio blue, and save our democracy.
