 The second prospective ballot effort in under a month has emerged seeking to legalize both medical and recreational marijuana in Ohio.

Representatives of Ohioans to End Prohibition plan to pursue a 2016 ballot initiative that would legalize the purchase, possession and use of cannabis and cannabis products for all Ohioans 21 and older.

The proposal they outlined Thursday differs from one announced last month by a different group by allowing individuals to grow marijuana at home for personal use. Only retail sales would be regulated and taxed. Those with authorized medical conditions could get a patient ID card for buying marijuana tax-free.

Responsible Ohio’s earlier legalization proposal calls for establishing 10 authorized growing locations around the state. It gives local communities the power to approve or deny future retail locations.
