The Toledo chapter of the National Organization or the Reform of Marijuana Laws wants to decriminalize the drug in Toledo.
Supporters claim pot usage is a nonviolent crime. The so-called "sensible Toledo" ordinance would reduce the penalties for most marijuana crimes to a minor misdemeanor. The group says that would mean no fines or jail time.
The group has collected 2,800 signatures so far. NORML says 6,600 signatures will be needed to place the issue on the November ballot.
"Were this to pass, what it would do is anybody who is found in possession of 200 grams or less of marijuana would be facing a minor misdemeanor. No problem. No fines. No jail time," said Sean Nestor.
NORML is also collecting signatures to legalize the recreational use of marijuana in the state of Ohio. The group hopes voters will be able to decide both measures on November 4.
