“I support the legalization of marijuana. I believe it would be a great opportunity to use supposedly one "old problem" to fix a very real new problem. Once legalized, marijuana can be regulated and taxed. The new state tax revenue can be used for new drug treatment centers and initiatives. Which would also cut down on our non-violent drug related prison population and help fight our opioid epidemic.” -Ohio Cannabis Activist Network

Randi Clites (D) LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE
“I would support legislation that would allow patients and/or caregivers to grow a limited amount of plants in their home for medical purposes. Because of my background as a healthcare advocate, I believe that alternative pain management and homeopathic treatment options should be available to the chronically ill population of Ohio. We must put patients first in the decisions made around healthcare options.” -Ohio Cannabis Activist Network
