TOLEDO MARIJUANA
Group collecting signatures in effort to decriminalize marijuana in Toledo

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, May 10, 2014 10:53 AM EDT
TOLEDO, Ohio


A petition drive has begun to decriminalize the use of marijuana in Toledo.

Members of Toledo's chapter of The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws began collecting signatures on Tuesday to put the measure before voters.

The measure, known as The Sensible Marijuana Ordinance, would prohibit police from citing or arresting someone for having, selling or using marijuana.

Unlike Colorado and Washington, where marijuana was recently legalized, the ordinance wouldn't allow for the taxation or regulation of pot.

Mary Smith, a spokeswoman for the group pushing for the ordinance, tells WTOL-TV that they've collected 2,800 signatures so far. They need 3,800 more in order to get the ordinance on Toledo's November ballot.

The drive is separate from a statewide effort to legalize medical marijuana throughout Ohio.
