Ohio Democrats Casey Weinstein (D-Hundson) and Terrance Upchurch (D-Cleveland) plan to introduce legislation in the Ohio House to legalize marijuana for personal use beyond medical permissions currently allowed in the state. It's the first bill that would structure the regulation and taxation of recreational marijuana use in Ohio. Additionally, those with prior convictions for marijuana would have records sealed and be allowed the opportunity for employment in the industry. The bill would allow people 21 or older to purchase and possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and grow up to 12 plants for personal consumption. Taxes on the sale would benefit cities, education, and infrastructure.
State Representative Weinstein joined The Scott Sands Show to discuss his bill. Watch the video interview below or click here to listen on our free iHeartRadio app.
