Petition Started To Legalize Marijuana And Hemp In Ohio

ohio marijuana medical marijuana legalizationPetitions are not legally binding, however, they are a good tool to express interest in a political cause, especially when it comes to marijuana reform. If enough people sign a petition, activists and media members can refer to it and point out that the idea(s) contained in the petition have a lot of support, so therefore they should become law. Politicians love to jump on bandwagons when they see that the bandwagon has momentum. Below is a petition to legalize marijuana and hemp in Ohio, along with a link to sign it if you choose:

    Much better than the other garbage initiative being proposed that bans cultivation and only allows 10 rich people to grow and sell weed.

  • Be real. Cannabis cannot genetically-produce THC. Repeal Prohibition or be the laughing stock of history.

    In regard to legalization in Ohio, all activist collecting signatures should ban together as (one). To obtain the three hundred and eighty five thousand signatures needed to be put on 2015 ballot. If there are 5 of you. 77000 signatures each will be your goal.

    Proposed: “Legally prevent employers from testing for cannabis, and from not hiring anyone who uses cannabis and hemp.”

    I look forward to the day when most employers realize that general-use testing for cannabis isn’t worth the time, effort, and high employee turnover rate. Until then, cannabis consumers have every right to start businesses that don’t test for cannabis or work for employers that don’t test, but as we seek more freedom I don’t think it’s going to turn out very well for us if seek to take others’ rights away in the process. Do the people who write these petitions in Ohio ever think?

    Seems far-reaching and idealistic, a “pie in the sky”… but wouldn’t it be nice… In regard to “banding together” …. we can do that… we need an additional 150 thousand valid signatures for the OCRA (Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment) to get ballot placement… please read it on our website http://www.ohiorightsgroup.org Its doable, and the right to grow your own medicine remains just that, your right.
