I love politics and enjoy following all the issues on a state and national level. I write about the usage of pots all the time in my cooking blogs but never have I attempted to share my opinions on this type of pot. This Issue sure has peoples blood pressure going sky HIGH!
Statistics show that in Ohio, 2.5 million fewer people voted in 2014 than during the presidential election of 2012. With such a significant drop in turnout, getting out the vote tomorrow is very crucial. Secretary of State Jon Husted said 75 elections in the last year were decided by one vote or tied. Every vote counts and your vote can make the difference.
In Ohio we have a pretty smoking hot item on the ballot and it the legalization of Pot, Weed, Mary Jane or what ever you want to call it. Issue 3 would allow exclusive rights to 10 self-selected wealthy investors the ability to grow marijuana for cultivation, extraction, manufacturing, research and production. That’s not how we do agriculture in the Buckeye state.”
Despite your logic behind smoking, growing or eating this plant, Issue 3 needs to be written differently and we owe it to ourselves and people in our community to rethink the passing of Issue 3. Lets not have the wool pulled over our eyes just to get this issue passed. I oppose creating a monopoly in the constitution for only a select few rich investors to gain more wealth. Lets work together to write legislation that is good for our families and the Ohio economy.
