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.
