Cannabis monopolization was rejected by Ohio voters soundly Tuesday.
Some will argue that this defeat was a setback for the legalization of marijuana, but they’re wrong. Oddly, this is generally a victory for the legalization of marijuana and marijuana legalization movement in particular.
1 against it: three quarters of the votes were counted on approximately 2 employees vote of the major news organizations, with the defeat of No. 3 Ohio State had ledge. Until then, responsible ohio reporting only partial returns, but all was losing votes in each district. They were not winning anywhere in the state.
Issue 3 selfish and greedy personal gain and marijuana supporters responsible ohio financial part of consumers, do not miss the marijuana legalization movement for reform attempts to exploit a wide range of HIGH TIMES, and the legalization of opposition supporters was stopped this silly initiative.
Responsible ohio proposal to take control of legal cannabis market was a cynical maneuver. They cannabis users, the cartel of 10 October responsible ohio company they meant to give up the entire growing legal rights even if I want to support any proposal which I thought was so desperate to make cannabis.
They were wrong, and they lose that huge losses.
Although the majority of Ohioans support cannabis legalization of cannabis cultivation and the final results are a clear majority of voters opposed granting a monopoly which reveal that only 36 percent voted for “yes.”
Responsible ohio benefits of legalization and prohibition failure tried to deflect criticism by focusing their advocacy of their flawed plans. But their monopoly plans to legalize any reasonable proposal that would deny them additional support opponents of legalization legalization many natural supporters, left off.
Another big blunder so-called premise that college students will draw the attention and support, the use of a life-size plush mascot named Buddie was an extremely stupid idea to publicize the initiative.
One of the big concerns I have about public legal cannabis production and distribution of Big Tobacco as large corporate interests will dominate and ultimately children want to market the drug. Anyone remember Joe Camel cartoon? How a legalization initiative bought into the narrative may think that any competent political operations net benefit?
Marijuana legalization is the most challenging aspects of corporate dominance on the legal industry opposition. The results of this initiative underlines the lesson. Open, free and competitive market is the best way to protect the public interest.
Competitive markets leveraging corporate oligopolies prevents the economic and political power to prevent effective regulation.
This fiasco is actually a victory for the cause of legalization.
This arrest is not only a question of ends and trade permits. Legal structure and regulatory framework for the industry are important issues. The question now and in the future, marijuana should be legal whether, but how regulated it should be legalized and taxed. That they need to support their widespread legalization successful proposals sends a message loud and clear because responsible ohio failure is a victory for consumers of marijuana.
This is also the Marijuana Policy Project, Drug Policy is a great victory for the Alliance.
These two defense organizations because of the monopoly provisions responsible ohio refused to support the proposal. They also pointed out that traditionally a bad strategy to place such a measure on the ballot in an off-year election with low voter turnout.
Ohio will have no impact on the national momentum to legalize marijuana this fiasco.
Several initiatives vote, before the voters in 2016 to generate public support for the legalization of cannabis and cannabis consumers and activists in attempts to draw broad support prepared by experienced professionals with successful track records will be placed.
This will have to wait for legal marijuana Ohioans very bad time. It did not have to be this way.
Responsible ohio had put the public interest before their private personal interests, they moved after heavy profit and fair competition in the market and could have won this war. But they lost, and unfortunately, we lost an opportunity to advance the marijuana legalization, put self-interest first.
