Ohio voters have made a historic decision on Election Day, as Issue 2 has been approved, making recreational marijuana legal in the state. With this approval, Ohio becomes the 24th state in the United States to embrace the legal of recreational marijuana.
If enacted by Ohio's voters on Election Day (November 7th), the possession of marijuana will become legal for adults on December 7th. This significant step forward in marijuana legislation marks a turning point for Ohioans who have long advocated for the legal and regulation of marijuana.
Issue 2, the ballot measure that was approved, will not only legal the possession of marijuana but also regulate its cultivation, sale, purchase, and use for recreational purposes. This means that adults in Ohio will have the freedom to grow their own marijuana plants, purchase marijuana products from licensed retailers, and consume marijuana in private settings.
