Ohio Medical Marijuana


Recommended Posts

I've been coming to Knox County, Ohio helping grassroots MM Patents and advocates collect enough signatures by July 5th.to get MM on the 2014 ballot. If any of our members know people or have relatives here please contact them and ask them to support MM.


As usual the same tired old reefer madness stories are being used (A-Z) and the most often one used is the old stand-by parroted by Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer  "the kids will get it"  believe me, the kids here have no problem getting their hands on cartel weed. (both foreign and domestic)


The drug LE should be focused on here (as in Michigan) is heroin, it's as common as mosquitoes on a summer night and killing kids right and left. (Of course opiates and meth are also available here in the bible belt of Ohio)


The farms of Ohio haven't only been replaced by shopping malls but protected grows.......

Ohio Medical Marijuana Ballot Initiative Fails

The state of Ohio may have decriminalized small amounts of cannabis (meaning that those caught with under 100 grams can go on their merry way with a misdemeanor and a ticket that costs $150), it seems like it won’t be joining the ranks of medical cannabis states this year.

Ohio has been on a short list of expected new “green” states in 2014, along with New York (where a law  just passed, pending a few more steps) and Pennsylvania, where they seem very close to doing to same, even if their legislative branch has to override the governor’s veto. Despite being in good company, Ohio’s medical marijuana ballot initiative for this fall appears to have failed to make it on the ballot.

The Ohio Rights Group had been gathering signatures but reportedly only gathered about 100,000 of the 386,000signatures they needed. This was due to a combination of factors, according to organizers, not limited to the fact that they had to make revisions after getting started, a major setback.

Of course, there is still Ohio House Bill 153, which could legalize cannabis use and cultivation for medical purposes, but it’s been dead in committee for some time.

Organizers, in the meantime, are already gearing up to get the same ballot initiative ready for the 2015 ballot drive. Good luck, Ohio! Ladybud will continue to follow this and other state-level medical marijuana laws as they progress.
