Ohioans for Medical Marijuana Campaign

The Ohioans for Medical Marijuana (OMM) campaign is backed by the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) and is working to pass a medical marijuana ballot initiative via simple majority vote in Ohio in November 2016.

The campaign’s website summarizes the initiative, saying it will:

Allow patients with debilitating medical conditions to use medical marijuana if their doctors recommend it;
Protect these seriously ill patients from arrest and prosecution for the simple act of using their doctor-recommended medicine;
Permit qualifying patients or their caregivers to cultivate their own marijuana for their medical use, with limits on the amount they could possess;
Permit qualifying patients to purchase medical marijuana from licensed and well-regulated entities;
Create registry identification cards, so that law enforcement officials can easily tell who is a registered patient;
Protect patients from discrimination in housing, health care (such as organ transplants), and child custody; and
Maintain commonsense restrictions on the medical use of marijuana, including prohibitions on public use of marijuana and driving under the influence of marijuana.
