The Marijuana Policy Project posted a job on its website Wednesday for an Ohio-based organizer for a campaign to pass a medical marijuana constitutional amendment in the 2016 election. 

According to the organization’s website, the MPP has helped pass medical marijuana initiatives in several states and helped the movement to legalize recreational marijuana in Colorado and Alaska. 

Currently the MPP is managing campaigns for marijuana legalization initiatives in 2016 in Arizona, California, Massachusetts and Nevada. 

The posting asks that the candidate be based in Ohio and familiar with local politics. 

“The overarching goal of the Ohio organizer is to help pass the ballot initiative on November 8,” the post reads. 

The MPP has not released an official statement on supporting the campaign.
