According to local cannabis advocates, four more Ohio cities will be voting on local measures to decriminalize marijuana this November. Although many cities faced signature-gathering challenges amid the coronavirus pandemic, activists announced on Wednesday they successfully collected enough valid signatures to qualify for municipal ballots. In Adena, Glouster, Jacksonville, and Trimble residents will vote on ballot reform measures after local boards of elections certified the petitions. If approved, they will join 18 other Ohio cities that have already enacted measures to lower penalties for misdemeanor cannabis possession in recent years.
