Ohio Voters Reject Marijuana; Business As Usual For Ohio Employers

After months of debate about the implications of legalizing marijuana in Ohio, Ohio voters resoundingly rejected the constitutional measure known as Issue 3.  Pre-election polls, which showed marijuana support to be essentially deadlocked, proved to be a poor predictor of the final outcome of the election as 65% of voters voted against legalizing marijuana.  Issue 2, the “anti monopoly” amendment which was introduced through a joint resolution of the General Assembly as a counter measure to the marijuana initiative, passed by a much closer margin: 52% to 48%.  Because the marijuana initiative lost outright, it is doubtful there will be any litigation following the election results.  So what does this all mean for Ohio Employers?  It’s business as usual.  Click here to read more about the failed marijuana initiative.
