Ohioans will soon be able to legally possess and use recreational marijuana as voters passed Issue 2, a citizens' initiated measure. This historic decision will make Ohio the twenty-fourth state in the United States to legalize the recreational possess and use of cannabis.
Before the November 7, 2023, election, voters should familiarize themselves with the proposed statute, which outlines the rules for cannabis possess and usage. It also addresses the timeline for when the new laws will go into effect.
The statute, if passed, will legalize, regulate, and tax the recreational use of marijuana in Ohio. This means that individuals aged 21 and above will be able to possess and use marijuana for personal enjoyment. Additionally, the statute allows for home cultivation and retail sale of cannabis products.
