Ohio’s voters rejected marijuana legalization


While it was rendered moot this year by the failure of the legalization initiative, the anti-monopoly amendment does effectively mean that similar legalization efforts will not find their way on to Ohio ballots in coming years. Commentators observed that if polls show that seniors and Republicans are the two groups  favorably disposed to marijuana legalization the electorate is typically older and more conservative. Kevin Sabet of the anti-legalization group Project SAM said “this proves the anti-legalization movement is alive and well. It means that when people understand this is about money – not pot – they are turned off.” In national polling on marijuana legalization in the U.S. support was nearly 60 percent in the latest Gallup poll.
