Total of 15 indicted by the Monroe County grand jury late last week

CLEVELAND (AP) - Ten Ohio counties are slated to have large indoor marijuana growing operations if backers of a constitutional amendment gather enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot in November and voters agree to legalize medicinal and recreational use of the drug.

Four of the proposed grow sites are in southwest Ohio, three in northeast Ohio, two in central Ohio and one in northwest Ohio.

Backers plan to spend millions of dollars to get the issue on the ballot and to campaign to get it approved. Attorney General Mike DeWine and Secretary of State Jon Husted have said they vehemently oppose the plan.

Recreational use of marijuana is legal in Colorado and Washington. Voters in Oregon and Alaska approved recreational use last November. Federal law prohibits marijuana use.
