    Advocates collected enough information for a November 3 vote.
    The Buckeye state will put pot legalization to the ballot on Nov. 3, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted confirmed.

    Putting marijuana legalization on the ballot took a couple tries: Ohio’s first attempt failed, but pro-pot advocate group ResponsibleOhio, a driving force behind the initiative, pulled through with the minimum 305,591 signatures. The group’s investors pledged to spend at least $20 million to convince Ohioans to vote for legalization.

    If the measure passes, however, legalization might take a while: in June, the Ohio Legislature hurriedly placed a measure, Issue 2, that prohibited “a monopoly, oligopoly or cartel” in Ohio of federally-controlled substances like marijuana. The ResponsibleOhio initiative calls for a limit to pot production by ten farms, which state legislators argue might constitute an oligopoly.

    Ohio follows ballot initiatives from across the country. Thus far, recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Washington, D.C.; 28 states make exceptions for medical marijuana.

    My family in Ohio still have Blue Laws and have to go to the next county to get anything but beer/wine.

    I can't even conceive of pot passing there. People in Cleveland, Columbus etc better all come out and vote in droves.

    I hope it passes and put more pressure on Pennsylvania to legalize it.

    I must have missed that. Last time I checked medical pot was on the docket but that was the last I saw.
    We have a new dem gov. Seems a little crazy maybe he can get some traction for it.

    Legalize it already everywhere and treat it like alcohol in terms of driving laws and suspicion of being high at work.

    At the same time, give 20 years to anyone found with an illegal gun for a first offense (along with stop and frisk making a strong comeback) and America gets better very quickly.

    ...if you want to see politic
    ...it had to be 10 years ago or more. i think they tried to sell it as the western part of the state had enough votes to over ride the more liberal eastern votes. something like that. iow the hicks in sticksville had a lot of dead people voting, the voters clearly had the margin for legalization.
