An Ohio Recreational Marijuana Amendment did not make the 2012 ballot in the state of Ohio as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have legalized the use of marijuana for recreational purposes in the state. According to reports, the measure was introduced by the National Organization for Reformation of Marijuana Laws.[1]

Path to the ballot

Since the measure was filed as an initiated constitutional amendment, the petition drive efforts needed to collect 385,247 signatures in order to place the referendum on the ballot. An initial 1,000 signatures and approval by the Ohio Attorney General were required prior to initiating petition circulation efforts.

The measure did not make the ballot, as the Ohio Secretary of State's office reported only one measure filing signatures by the deadline.[2]
