AT THE STATEHOUSE AN OHIO SENATE COMMITTEE IS WEIGHING CHANGES TO A PROPOSAL THAT WOULD LEGALIZE MEDICAL MARIJUANA


AT THE STATEHOUSE AN OHIO SENATE COMMITTEE IS WEIGHING CHANGES TO A PROPOSAL THAT WOULD LEGALIZE MEDICAL MARIJUANA. 
THE BILL ALREADY APPROVED BY THE HOUSE WOULD BAR PATIENTS FROM SMOKING THE SUBSTANCE BUT ALLOW THEM TO USE IT IN VAPOR FORM. THEY COULDN'T GROW IT AT HOME. COMMUNITIES COULD OPT OUT OF HOSTING DISPENSARIES, AND EMPLOYERS WHO WANT TO MAINTAIN DRUG-FREE WORKPLACES WOULD BE PROTECTED FROM LIABILITY. THE BILL WOULD CREATE A NINE-MEMBER MEDICAL MARIJUANA CONTROL COMMISSION TO SET RULES FOR CULTIVATING, DISTRIBUTING AND LICENSING CANNABIS. THE FAST-TRACKED BILL IS EXPECTED TO REACH TO THE GOVERNOR BY THE END OF THE MONTH.
