OHIO: ResponsibleOhio’s plan to legalize marijuana through a limited number of commercial growers is being criticized by two staunch supporters of marijuana legalization — the Green Party of Ohio and Libertarian Party of Ohio.
The two groups join grassroots pro-pot groups in opposing ResponsibleOhio’s proposed constitutional amendment, which would legalize marijuana for medical and personal use but limit commercial growing to10 predetermined sites promised to wealthy campaign backers. ResponsibleOhio plans to put its constitutional amendment before Ohio voters in November.
“There is nothing ‘responsible’ about ResponsibleOhio,” Libertarian Party of Ohio Political Director Tricia Sprankle said in a statement. “This isn’t a proposal to restore rights to Ohioans. It’s a crony scheme to line the pockets of a few wealthy investors.”
