Will Ohio pass marijuana legalization laws?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, November, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
will-ohio-pass-marijuana-lawsTuesday's election broadened marijuana legalization laws in some states, making it easier to get and even grow.
 
Pot is still illegal in Ohio but there is a growing number of people approve of it for medicinal purposes and there may come a day when you're asked to vote on it.
 
More marijuana shops will be popping up across the country, and as more states decriminalize marijuana, Ohio may be positioned to make it legal here according to marijuana advocates.
 
Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form. Four states now legalized it for recreational use.
 
Alaska and Oregon approved it in Tuesday's election. District of Columbia voters overwhelmingly approved legalizing recreational-purpose marijuana that will be subject to Congressional review.
 
All of these moves give hope to the Ohio Rights Group, an organization that is trying to get marijuana legalized in Ohio.
 
ORG currently has one hundred thousand signatures but needs 385,000 to get it on the Ohio ballot. Pardee thinks that it could happen by next years election because he says public opinion is changing.
 
Theresa Daniello believes in the science behind the endocannabinoid system, a part of the brain that affects both the nervous system and organs. She says it's why medical marijuana is thought to help so many different health problems. And Daniello has personal experience.
 
It's also why she dedicates her life to educating healthcare professionals and lobbies to get compassionate use legislation passed in Ohio. She represents 45 families of children with devastating seizure disorders. Such as Dravet Syndrome, a condition that causes children to experience several potentially deadly seizures daily.
 
Many parents are moving to legal states like Colorado to access cannabis oil, or CBD, because in some cases it reduces the seizures. Daniello thinks parents should not have to leave the state to get medicine.
 
She also believes Ohio is primed to consider legalization, at least medicinally. Some people see that as a potential economic benefit.
 
Voters in Oregon, Alaska and Washington, D.C., legalized recreational marijuana Tuesday. But without the support of the U.S. Congress, any of the new, voter-approved pot shops may not be able to survive a drug war-era tax code that already threatens many businesses in Colorado and Washington state. That means some of the profits may go up in smoke.
