Weekly CannaBit for the week of Nov. 10, 2015: New Frontier analyzes the wide gulf between pre-election marijuana legalization support in Ohio and the election outcome.
On Nov. 3, 2015, Ohio voters went to the polls and soundly rejected Issue 3, a measure that would have legalized both recreational and medicinal marijuana; however, even though marijuana was defeated at the polls, that does not mean the end of marijuana in Ohio.
The recent failure of Issue 3 to legalize marijuana in Ohio may say as much about state politics and corporate greed as it does about the progress of cannabis legalization across the country.
Issue 3 is dead. Election officials called it early Tuesday night, declaring that ResponsibleOhio’s Marijuana Legalization Initiative had failed to garner the majority support necessary to become law.
On Nov. 3, 2015, Ohio voters overwhelmingly rejected Issue 3, a ballot initiative that would have legalized both recreational and medical marijuana.
As Ohio gets ready to go to the polls for its off-year election, the issue of marijuana legalization is also in the national spotlight.
On Nov. 3, 2015, Ohio voters will have the opportunity to amend the Ohio Constitution to legalize medical and adult recreational use of marijuana in the state. But even if Issue 3 passes, the future of legal marijuana is far from certain in Ohio.
Weekly CannaBit for the week of Oct. 19, 2015: With Ohio poised to vote on marijuana legalization on November 3, 2015, the outcome of the election will hinge on the votes of young liberals.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 20, 2015 / Weed Wire / — New Frontier, the leading Big Data provider in the cannabis industry, forecasts that Ohio’s legal marijuana retail sales if approved on the ballot this November under Issue 3, will be significantly lower than ResponsibleOhio’s forecast.
Ohio is less than one month away from a critical vote that will decide the fate of marijuana legalization in the state. On the ballot are two contradictory initiatives: Issue 3 and Issue 2.
Legalization of marijuana is a highly contested subject in Ohio, as the current proposed amendment, Issue 3, has both supporters and opponents. This did not stop Columbus, Ohio, from hosting Hempfest on the Ohio State University campus.
Buddie, a green-muscled marijuana mascot, is serving as a spokesperson for ResponsibleOhio on college campuses across the state, encouraging students to vote yes on ResponsibleOhio’s campaign.
Earlier this month, the Ohio Ballot Board released ballot language for the proposed marijuana measure, Issue 3, but the group pushing the initiative, ResponsibleOhio, was quick to denounce the ballot language as false and misleading, leading the group to file a lawsuit.
ResponsibleOhio’s new ad does not show marijuana and it makes very few references to the plant. Instead, the ad attacks the failed war on marijuana and uses Retired Cincinnati Police Capt. Howard Rahtz to make its case.
