Tuesday night voters in Ohio will decide on recreational and medical marijuana legalization in their state. They will decide on Issue 3 and Issue 2 and there are several outcomes possible when all the votes have been counted:
*If both Issues fail: there is no marijuana legalization, but the way will be open for more ballot initiatives in the future.
*If Issue 3 passes and Issue 2 fails: marijuana will be legal in the state of Ohio (barring court challenges pending in other matters).
*If both Issues pass: Issue 2 will supersede Issue 3 and marijuana will not be legal in Ohio.
*If Issue 2 passes and Issue 3 fails: not only will marijuana not be legal in the state, future initiatives could be shut down before they get off the ground by the state’s ballot board.
Put a simpler way, Ohio voters must decide if they want medical and recreational marijuana legalization or if they want cannabis prohibition to continue. As you can see, there is a lot at stake. Read all about Issue 3 at The Smoking Bud.
