Looks like Ohio has defended itself from the pot smoking scum bags for at least another year. But get ready, the joint craving lunatics of the lazy youth will be back for another round of tradition destroying endeavor by progressive activists. Interesting reactions by the general public, seen below as the results came in.
State Issue 3
Issue 3 permits commercial production and sale of marijuana by what amounts to a monopoly in 10 locations around the state, It allows individuals to grow limited amounts for personal use. (read more)
It’s a shame the amendment wasn’t structured differently. Clearly, at a minimum, medical use should be permitted. Ohio had a chance to be ahead of the curve for once. There goes that.
Soooooooo not to point out the obvious but didn’t you guys just outlaw monopolies? Anyone know of any electric companies with no competition in your area?
Did Republicans really just think that was a good idea just to stop weed?
@Chalmette02 I hear what you’re saying, and respect it. I really didn’t want to have to vote Yes on Issue 2. It was promulgated by the GOP in the Ohio legislature, which I don’t trust … however, it was the ONLY way I could see ensuring that Ian James and his Irresponsible “We Feel the Need for Greed with Weed” crowd from bringing back Issue 3 over and over again — until it passed. Sometimes, you have to choose the lesser of two evils — HEY!!!! I do that in every PRESIDENTIAL election! Who knew?!
repubs like me hate monopolies. we are business starters you fool
So far, so good! Ohioans are proving that they are smarter than Ian James, John Pardee, their carpetbagging buddies, and their cronies! Ohio may legalize, but it will NOT be with monopolization for fat cats to make money off Ohioans, and ship it back to their ivory towers!
THE CLOCK STRUCK TWELVE! THE MONOPOLY IS LOSING!
What a great day it is to be an Ohioan! ISSUE 3? GTFOH!
LEAVE NOW Dopey
why don’t you try to send me there cockgobbler
@david Go listen to your 98 degree songs, you scab!
@david Dafuq outta here!
@david is the poster child for for the Issue 3 investors, Ohio needs more davids.
@david relax….your dealer loves you and giant eagle has doritos bogo
Expect to see a few people leave the state who have kids who need medical marijuana. Ohio is a strange place.
@Chalmette02 why don’t you petition for a medicinal ballot instead of a recreational one genius???
@Chalmette02 If these kids “really” needed it, you’d figure they’d already be gone. If they “really” needed it.
@Chalmette02 I do feel for those who want to use medical marijuana to relieve severe pain including terminal illness … but you have to understand, IrresponsibleOhio’s greed grab of a monopolistic pot plan — leaving my entire Southeast Ohio region out of the pot “mix” when we po’ folk need the jobs down here! — alienated A LOT of voters. You have no one but IrresponsibleOhio to blame. Its celebrity greedy weed grab crowd could not be trusted and it showed in the polls – BIGTIME.
Today is like going to McDonald’s — “I’m LOvin’ iT!” on these Issue 1, 2, 3 results!!!! IrresponsibleOhio lost on BOTH Issue 2 and 3 — the voters HAVE SPOKEN, so take your taxpayer-funded lawsuit idea, Ian, and go live in ANOTHER state where Monopolies can”take root.” And take weird hermaphrodie Buddie with you!
@david Then move to Chokelahoma, or wherever you and your favorite cartel can go along to get along! Pal
I’m having trouble understanding what you just posted. It was funny though. Am I supposed to agree or disagree with what you just said?
@Saganhawking Agree if you believe in free markets and the right to a responsible free market weed plan — let the best cultivator win — let it be about who GROWS THE BEST WEED — We down here beside Meigs Gold will win — and YOU should have the right to buy it without a cartel interfering!
Yuep, horrible place to live. I hear Colorado, Washington and California calling your name. It’s a free country, go for it. The doors are open to you. Now write legislation concerning weed here in Ohio we can all agree to and maybe more would vote for it…
well the Cleveland.com poll sure was off this year wasng it.
marijuana got its leaf kicked.
way to go people, send the pot smokers back to Colorado so they can drive while impaired elsewhere. we don’t need pot smokers here
@BlingFingers We especially don’t need greedy constitutional monopolies.
@BlingFingers There will be plenty of pot smokers here as there always has been. I guess most people here still favor a nanny state.
