Recreational Marijuana Issue Approved By Ohio Voters

Ohioans on Tuesday approved a measure to legalize the use of recreational marijuana in Ohio.

The Act to Control and Regulate Adult Use Cannabis would permit controlled and regulated sales and use of cannabis for adult consumers 21 years of age and older.

Those in favor of legalization point out that it would remedy failed marijuana policy that can ruin lives based on one mistake, expand access to medical use and generate new tax revenue.

Opponents say Issue 2 would legalize an addiction-for-profit industry at the expense of families and poses a substantial health risk to all Ohioans.
