Petition to legalize hemp production and medical marijuana

Posted in the Delaware Forum

21st century amendment

Mount Vernon, OH

#1 Jul 10, 2013
I'm sure this post will get the predictable idiot/stoner/loser/slacker responses, and that's fine...there are definitely idiot stoner loser slackers out there. The thing to keep in mind is that these folks a) are using marijuana *now* and b) they aren't working that hard to do so.
The Ohio Rights Group has put together an amendment to the state constitution that legalizes the agricultural production of hemp and the cultivation, possession and and use of small quantities of marijuana for medical purposes. Of course there will be some that abuse the intent of this law, but the benefit to those that are using higher risk prescription medication (solely because marijuana is illegal) will be worth it, as it has been in the 18 other states (and D.C.) that have done this already.
If you have any interest in seeing this amendment reach the ballot, the Ohio Rights Group NEEDS YOUR SIGNATURE. Without enough signatures, this amendment will never see a ballot and we will be forced to wait for this to be introduced through typical channels.
Ohio Rights Group has a website at , and a Facebook page ( ). The effort is split into counties, and the Union County chapter has their own Facebook page ( ). If you have Facebook, get in contact with the Union County captain. If not, hit the project site at ' ' and email the contacts there. Based on comments from the Facebook site, it looks like people will be at the Union County Fair collecting signatures, so keep an eye out for them if you stop by!
