Backers of a plan to put an all-out legalization of marijuana before voters this fall say they plan to introduce the issue in a couple of weeks.

Marijuana legalization spokesman Ian James says the group he represents is putting the final touches on proposed language for the petition to legalize marijuana in Ohio.
