    It is way passed time to change this law. It has been proven over and over again the benefits of Marijuana as well as evidence that it is not a "gateway drug".
    It is long pass the time to legalize marijuana at the federal level in this country. The days of “Reefer Madness” are far behind us, We now know the truth about this gift, It has never had a overdose, It has NO side affects that prescription drugs have, And the list goes on. It is time that we act as adults and stop denying the sick, Elderly, Disabled the ability to have access to a medicine that can bring them relief from a very long list of ailments. The list continues to grow on what we can use this plant for including the opioid addiction and thousands of deaths from opioids in Ohio. It’s time Ohio leaders give the people what they want, The voters have and will speak on how we ALL want this to happen. 65% of Americans approve marijuana and the list is growing. it’s time!!
