Medical Marijuana: How a Local Government Suppressed the Will of State Voters

May 6, 2017

Ohio Voters Want Medical Marijuana

In this off schedule podcast, I talk about my local city government and how they quietly buried a prohibition on medical marijuana in our city.

The voters in the State of Ohio voted last year allowing medical marijuana to become a lawful industry in the state. However, state officials left it up to the individual municipalities to decide whether or not to allow it.

Local Government Doesn't

My city had passed two moratoriums prohibiting it, and then permanently blocked it by including it in a giant legislation package focused on city-wide zoning changes to the business district.

Watch to find out why I'm upset about this and hear my statement to city council before their vote.

Here is a link to the CATO institute article I mentioned in the video. It was published March 2nd, 2016 and written by Michael D Tanner, Senior Fellow at the CATO Institute.
