DeWine Rejects Yet Another Marijuana Legalization Proposal


Republican Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has rejected the summary for a statewide ballot issue seeking to legalize medical marijuana and industrial hemp. The Ohio Rights Group must now rephrase and resubmit its petitions. DeWine found its summary failed to state industrial hemp and medicinal cannabis would be "researched, regulated, and promoted by the state in a manner substantially similar to other agricultural crops." He said the wording also misrepresented how the age limit of 21 would work.
