Ohio Issue 2, also known as the Marijuana Legalization Initiative, is set to be decided by Ohio's voters on Election Day, which falls on November 7th. If enacted, the possession of marijuana will become legal for adults in Ohio on December 7th.
Ohio Issue 2 aims to commercialize and regulate the recreational use of marijuana in the state. The initiative seeks to establish a framework for the legal production, sale, and taxation of marijuana products.
Advocates argue that Ohio Issue 2 could bring significant economic benefits to the state, creating jobs and generating tax revenue. Proponents also emphasize the potential for regulation, ensuring product safety and preventing illicit trade.
