Proposals would legalize marijuana in Ohio
Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, May, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
As poll numbers show Ohioans are growing increasingly comfortable with the idea of marijuana use, a Youngstown Democrat wants to give people the chance to make the drug fully legal in Ohio.
Rep. Robert F. Hagan has made a few attempts over the years to persuade his colleagues to allow for the use of medical marijuana in Ohio, and each effort has died a quiet death.
A spokesman for Speaker William G. Batchelder, R-Medina, declined to comment on the pair of proposals Hagan introduced yesterday.
One is a bill that would allow patients with certain chronic conditions such as cancer or sickle-cell anemia to use marijuana for treatment. Eighteen other states have approved similar measures.
“In addition to the studies that show marijuana to be a valuable treatment option for chronic pain, nausea and seizure disorders, I have heard countless stories of how cannabis has made a difference in the lives of people who are sick or dying,” Hagan said.
His other proposal, modeled after an amendment recently passed in Colorado, would ask voters to approve allowing people 21 or older to purchase and use marijuana. The drug could be sold only by state-licensed establishments and would be subject to a 15 percent excise tax.

Councilman Credits Marijuana For Helping Put His Cancer In Remission

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Los Angeles Councilman Bill Rosendahl announced Thursday his cancer is in remission.
The 67-year-old Rosendahl gave major credit to medical marijuana for his recovery.
Rosendahl told reporters last July he was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer of the ureter, located between his kidney and bladder.
“Frankly I was given a death sentence,” he said. Doctors told him he would not live to see last November’s election and prompted his decision not to seek a third term.
“I went though five months of hell,” Rosendahl said.
Marijuana allowed him to get a full and painless night’s sleep and he said he started feeling stronger about two months ago.
“I hope to live another 30 years,” Rosehdahl said, “I’m very optimistic.”
