Ohio voters reject legal pot, pass anti-monopoly, redistricting measures

by AP  |  published on November 4, 2015

Ohio voters rejected a first-of-its-kind proposal Tuesday that would have legalized both medical and recreational marijuana, following an expensive campaign, a legal fight over its ballot wording and an investigation into the proposal’s petition signatures.

At the same time, voters approved a measure to prevent monopolies from being inserted into the state constitution and a legislative redistricting overhaul that had been a priority of both political parties.

The measure known as Issue 3 on Tuesday’s ballot would have allowed adults 21 and older to use, purchase or grow certain amounts of marijuana and made cannabis available for medical uses in the same vote, a unique approach nationally.

The constitutional amendment would have established a regulatory and taxation scheme while creating a network of 10 growing facilities.
