The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol formed in 2021 with the purpose of legalizing an adult-use marijuana program in Ohio. The campaign, which is collecting petitions to place its legalization measure on the fall ballot, has received more than $1.6 million in donations in the past two years. Here's where that money is coming from.
The deadline has passed for lawmakers to act on a proposed marijuana legalization law that was submitted to the General Assembly in January. This opens the door for the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol to gather additional voter signatures enabling it to come before voters as a direct referendum in November.
The National Association for Marijuana and Cannabis Educators was founded by Cleveland School of Cannabis president Tyrone Russell. While effectively decentralized and national in scope, the group will be based out of Columbus.
