All of the pot users you know are about to use their voting power to subvert the Ohio Constitution to grant state government the ability to allow corrupt monopolies, oligopolies, and cartels. They are so desperate to have their weed openly that they will destroy our state's future. These two bills are garbage, and people should know better. They should have been rejected before they even had a chance.

The trend is not changing: with 34% of precincts reporting, Issue 3-legalized marijuana--down 65%- 35%. @WCPO
instead of collecting 15% tax on pot , we will be spending hard tax dollars on prosocting.

I feel for all people that #3 would have helped.
by concerned11/4/2015 2:39:06 AM
Maybe the people that voted no on #3 should have to tell the families of people that can use it to better their lives "as a med" should have to tell them, "You don't have the right to live a good life because we don't like it"

Maybe if the people who brought Issue 3 to the ballot cared about the People of Ohio instead of their already bulging wallets the People of Ohio would have voted this in. The polls are pretty clear, Ohioans by and large support the full legalization of Marijuana. What they do NOT support are monopolies, oligarchy and the increasing culture of greed and money in politics that is DESTROYING THE COUNTRY

Heres to hoping we can get it Legalized in a way that works for everyone so that those who need it for medical purposes can have it available.
to all of those below saying we are terrible people for voting no to #3 and should have to tell the person personally - I encourage you all to educate yourselves and look up a medication called dronabinol. People who have a medical need for something to help them with pain relief, to increase appetite, and provide relief from severe nausea vomiting (i.e. cancer patients, other end of life patients) can use this medication and it has been used for years in clinics and hospitals. It is pretty much an oral version of pot, it simply can't be smoked. Those that voted no to 3 did NOT vote to hurt people suffering at all, they can still take many medications including dronabinol a THC derivative that can help them. - a person who works for these patients

This was not a plan to benefit anyone with a medical need. This was not even a plan to allow reasonable recreational use. It was a plan for a few individuals to make huge amounts of money, shut others out of any profit and limit the amount of taxes they would pay. In short it was about greed!
