Review Fails to Live Up to Promise

Manish A. Mehta, Donald R. Longman '32 Professor of Chemistry

ResponsibleOhio, a nonprofit organization campaigning to legalize marijuana for medical and personal use for adults over the age of 21, is pushing for the facility to be located within city limits. Although homegrown marijuana will be allowed conditionally, the majority of ResponsibleOhio’s proposed amendment to the Ohio constitution focuses on creating legalized marijuana stores and testing facilities that will be centralized and heavily regulated. The Marijuana Control Commission, a regulatory body that the amendment would create, will regulate the 10 growing locations and at least five testing facilities across Ohio. The marijuana...
