DeWine Rejects Third Marijuana Legalization Effort


Republican Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has rejected a petition for the third proposed constitutional amendment to legalize marijuana, saying the proposed summary of the so-called Cannabis Control Amendment contains too many inconsistencies regarding restrictions on minors. He also says the measure contains no provisions for a partial ban of marijuana and related items, but the summary refers to a ban "in whole or in part." DeWine and the Ohio Ballot Board previously approved two other legalization efforts making their way toward voters. The Better for Ohio amendment would legalize both medical and recreational marijuana and set guidelines for cultivation, sale and use. The ResponsibleOhio amendment provides authorized growing locations and no registration required for home growers.
