We trusted the voters throughout the process and we maintain our trust in the voters today. They have made clear that we made two big mistakes - by self-selecting limited grow site opportunities and making Buddie the face of the campaign.
Our next plan will include a free market for people to own and operate their own grow, manufacturing and retail facilities. The plan will ensure that the industry is treated like other businesses in regards to taxation. We will have a new approach to home grow without permitting and inclusion of growing hemp to provide opportunities for Ohio’s farmers.
We also have to continue pursuing the Fresh Start Act because Ohioans with the unfair, minor infractions associated with marijuana don't deserve to be shackled to their past.
