Ohio voters pass measure to legalize recreational marijuana

DAYTON — Voters in Ohio have passed a measure that will commercialize, regulate, legalize, and tax the adult use of marijuana, CBS projects.

Those who voted “yes” supported allowing the sale and purchase of marijuana which a new division of cannabis control would regulate.

It allows anyone over the age of 21 to use and have up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and enact a 10% tax on those sales.

A “no” vote opposes the initiative to legalize marijuana in Ohio.

Ohio will be the 24th state to legalize marijuana for adult use.

It would likely take a few months before we see the first recreational marijuana sales in Ohio.
