Our initiative starts with patients and ends with patients, plus it includes the added bonus of increased opportunity for small Ohio businesses and farms to thrive. We believe our Constitution is a place to declare inherent rights of Ohioans and not to enshrine investor interests.
We recognize that a degree of regulation is needed to ensure public health and safety, over-regulation – particularly when placed in the Constitution – only serves an obstacle to future progress.
We feel that the Cannabis Amendment provides a good basic outline for the general assembly, without defining limits for personal or commercial use.
We intend to place a basic enumeration of cannabis rights into the Ohio Constitution.
Our initiative removes cannabis from the Controlled Substance Act, and vacates all prior cannabis convections.
