Ohio voters snuff out pot proposal
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Voters rejected a plan to legalize recreational and medical marijuana use there.
The proposal, known as Issue 3, would have allowed adults 21 and older to use, purchase or grow certain amounts of weed. A constitutional amendment would have created a regulatory and taxation framework along with a network of ten growing facilities.
Failure of the proposed constitutional amendment follows an expensive campaign, a legal fight over its ballot wording and an investigation into the proposal's petition signatures.
