Ohio Votes Against Legalization of Marijuana
Those who are in support of the legalization of marijuana should look to the States of Colorado and Washington and learn from the mistakes that were made. If the State of Ohio hopes to one day pass a recreational marijuana law, they should start with a medicinal marijuana law controlled by the State. They should also leave out any monopoly that could be created on this issue. Due to the upcoming presidential election, there will be a significant amount of voter turnout in 2016. The proponents for the legalization of marijuana should realize that the vast majority of the additional turnout on a presidential election will vote for legalization and should turn their attention to passing legislation in the 2016 race.
