Legislators in Ohio Hear Testimony on A Bill to Legalize Recreational Marijuana Use.!
On Tuesday, two Ohio politicians spoke in favor of a bill that would make marijuana legal for adults over the age of 21.
Representatives Casey Weinstein (D-Hudson) and Terrence Upchurch (D-Cleveland) spoke before the state House Finance Committee in support of House Bill 382.
Jobs, tax money, and stable families: that’s what Upchurch’s proposed legislation, HB 382, will do, he stated in a statement. This is essential for Ohioans.
The Legislation Would Legalize Cannabis Production and Possession for People Over the Age of 18.
The law would also make it possible to seal criminal records for those convicted of drug charges in the past for growing or possessing marijuana.
A majority of Americans now reside in states that have either fully legalized or partially decriminalized cannabis for adult usage. According to a statement released by Weinstein, “Ohioans are ready for this step.” I’m looking forward to reintroducing this bill in the upcoming General Assembly, and I’m convinced we have the necessary bipartisan support to make it a reality.
The law would also impose a 10% excise tax on the total sales revenue of any marijuana dispensary or microbusiness. K-12 education would receive 35% of the excise tax money, infrastructure like roads and bridges would get 35%, and local governments that allow dispensaries to set up shop would get 30%.
A total of up to $20 million over the first two years would be set aside for clinical trials investigating the potential of marijuana to treat medical problems common among veterans and prevent veteran suicide.
