Early voting for an Ohio marijuana legalization initiative begins on Wednesday, giving the state’s voters a chance to make the state the 24th in the nation to legalize recreational cannabis for adults. Early in-person voting begins on October 11 for the statewide election to be held next month on Tuesday, November 7. The measure sponsored by the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol is listed as Issue 2 in voting materials, appearing on the ballot with a proposed constitutional amendment to protect reproductive rights including abortion.

If passed, the proposed ballot initiative would legalize recreational marijuana in Ohio for adults 21 and older, who would be permitted to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and up to 15 grams of cannabis concentrates. The proposal also legalizes marijuana cultivation for personal use, with adults allowed to grow up to six cannabis plants at home. Households with more than one adult would be permitted to grow a total of 12 plants.
