I wrote my ohio representative in the 97th district & he did respond....but DOES NOT SUPPORT LEGALIZATION IN OHIO!!!! Here is HIS response in HIS OWN WORDS:
..........Dear Scott,

Thank you for your recent e-mail regarding House Joint Resolution 6, which would put on the ballot the issue of legalizing marijuana here in Ohio. One of my favorite aspects of this job is the amount of feedback I receive when issues like this are proposed by my colleagues. Since its introduction by Representative Robert Hagan, I have heard from many on both sides of the marijuana topic.

I have always been opposed to the legalization of marijuana, and remain that way now. For those who claim that medicinal marijuana helps to ease their pain and better certain symptoms they suffer from, there already exists on the legal market synthetic forms of marijuana. Legalizing cannabis in Ohio will only open the door to a world of problems that all stem from drug use: crime, introduction to other (more dangerous) drugs, and increased dependence to other drugs just to name a few. I realize that this legislation would leave it up to the citizens of Ohio to decide whether or not to legalize the drug. While I believe in the democratic system, I was elected and sent to Columbus to vote for the great people of the 97th House District on matters like this, no matter the polarizing effects they have on society. Should we, the General Assembly, vote the way the people donít like, they can always put it up for a referendum vote and overturn our decision.

I will continue to research the issue and learn everything that I can to cast an informed vote. However, with the drug problem that already exists in and around Muskingum and Guernsey counties, I donít see at this time how legalizing marijuana use would help in any way.

I am proud to represent you in Columbus, and my goal is to achieve those things that are best for our district, and for our state. Thank you again for taking time out of your day to write me regarding this issue.

Have a nice day,


Brian D. Hill
State Representative

A state representative should be voting the way his constituents want them to vote, not just however they want to vote since they were elected to office. Just because they got into office doesn't mean the people who voted for them will agree with every idea they have, even a married couple is going to disagree on somethings.Brian Hill is full of himself.
