DeWine Approves Language For ResponsibleOhio's "Fresh Start" Act

The group working to get a marijuana legalization issue on the fall ballot has passed the next step in a separate effort to have some related crimes expunged. ResponsibleOhio says its "Fresh Start Act" calls for reviewing and expunging criminal records for people with previous marijuana convictions if their actions would no longer be considered illegal under the proposed state constitutional amendment. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has cleared the petition language, a move that sends the effort to the state Ballot Board for further review.
