Vermilion cop suspended over marijuana legalization pin
VERMILION, Ohio — A Vermilion police officer was suspended Monday after he wore a pin on his uniform that expressed support for the legalization of marijuana.
Michael Reinheimer said he wore a pin that read "I support legalize 2016" Saturday morning as he took part in an auction of old police and city equipment.
"Legalize Ohio 2016" is an organization that advocates for the legalization of marijuana in Ohio. The group's website features a petition to get a marijuana amendment on next year's November ballot.

Illinois growers get green light to ship marijuana to stores
Medical marijuana growers in Illinois have been notified by state officials that they can start shipping their products to dispensaries Friday for sale to patients early next week.
Growers, who have been waiting for the official green light, received an Illinois Department of Agriculture letter late Thursday explaining how marijuana can be transported. Illinois medical cannabis program director Joseph Wright confirmed the authorization Friday to The Associated Press.
Marijuana can be transported only between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., according to the official instructions. Vehicles carrying it must be staffed by at least two cultivation center employees.
"We're thrilled," said Bradley Vallerius, spokesman for Revolution Cannabis-Delavan, a cultivation center in central Illinois, which plans to ship products to dispensaries this weekend.
