Ohio AG Rejects Medical Marijuana

Associated Press COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Attorney General Mike DeWine has, rejected one group’s effort to get a medical marijuana on Ohio ballot and its not the first time that the Ohio AG rejects medical marijuana. He’s done it 3 times before, and has made his position abundantly clear that he is no friend of cannabis.

DeWine said Friday he found at least 11 defects in the latest constitutional amendment proposed by the group Ohio Medical Cannabis Care LLC.

He says the summary language states that persons over the age of 21 must obtain a registration card or certificate from the group to grow medical marijuana, sometimes called cannabis.

But the amendment itself says all patients over the age of 21 “possess the right to grow medical cannabis.”

His office found the summary and full text contained other inconsistent statements.

DeWine’s earlier rejections were in July, October and January.
