About this Organization

Ohioans for Medical Marijuana is a committee formed by the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) to support a ballot initiative establishing a comprehensive, patient-focused medical marijuana law in Ohio. It represents a coalition of patients, families, advocates, and organizations committed to enacting a sensible, fair, and compassionate medical marijuana program.

We must collect at least 305,591 valid signatures by the first week of July to qualify the measure for the November ballot . We plan to collect far more than that to ensure more than enough are deemed valid by state officials.

If the initiative qualifies for the ballot, it will be decided by Ohio voters on Election Day, November 8, 2016.
