Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost rejects ballot language for marijuana legalization proposal

State Attorney General Dave Yost, who oversees the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, has officially rejected Ballot Issue 3, the Marijuana Legalization Amendment, which would legalize marijuana in Ohio. The Ballot Issue 3 language was rejected because it was poorly written and would have made the state a “jurisdiction” and not a “state”. This would have made the Ohio General Assembly responsible for regulating and taxing marijuana instead of the state.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has rejected a ballot language for a medical marijuana legalization initiative. The Ohio Ballot Board voted 4-0 to reject the ballot language for Issue 3, which is proposed to legalize marijuana in Ohio for medical purposes. Who knows why Yost is blocking this initiative from going on the ballot. Maybe the Ohio Attorney General is hoping that voters will reject Issue 3, but it will be interesting to see if this causes other states to rethink their own legalization efforts.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has rejected proposed ballot language for a cannabis legalization ballot measure, in a move that is likely to delay the effort’s ability to qualify for the ballot. The proposal, which was submitted by Responsible Ohio, is currently in the process of being certified for the November ballot. The new language, which was submitted by Responsible Ohio on Monday, will be evaluated by the Ohio Elections Commission, and then by Yost’s office. The attorney general wrote in a letter to the commission that while the proposed ballot language met all of the requirements, “the proposal is substantially different than the initiative that was certified for the prior 2012 election.”
