30_c0unties.jpgThirty Ohio Counties Have Their Minimum Signatures

Recent counts confirm thirty Ohio counties that have met their minimum number of signatures. The procedures for placing a constitutional amendment on the ballot require signatures to be obtained from at least 44 of Ohio's 88 counties, and the signatures in each of these 44 counties must equal at least 5 percent of the total vote cast for the office of governor in that county at the last gubernatorial election.

The map shows the target minimum signature totals needed for ballot placement in each Ohio county. County-based signature gathering for the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment is led by County Captans, and over 70 Ohio counties have one in place. If you are interested in gathering signatures or leading a county, please visit our Volunteer page, and select your county, fill out and submit the form to the ORG. We'll be in touch.

United Food and Commercial Workers International Union Endorses the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment

(Columbus, OH): The Ohio Rights Group is delighted to learn that Region 4 and UFCW locals 75 and 1059 have formally endorsed the ORG’s effort to place the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment on the 2014 ballot. This region and the locals are part of the 1.3 million-member United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.

Specifically, the UFCW supports the state regulated medicinal and therapeutic use of cannabis by eligible Ohio residents who have been diagnosed with defined debilitating medical conditions. They endorse the establishment of an Ohio Commission of Cannabis Control to regulate the distribution of medicinal and therapeutic cannabis in its various forms to eligible residents. Estimates show that passage of this measure could help alleviate the suffering of hundreds of thousands of sick, dying and disabled Ohioans. The union also backs the industrial use of hemp, which would benefit farmers, as well as production, manufacturing, distribution, and agricultural workers.

ORG President John Pardee expressed his gratitude to the UFCW for their endorsement, stating, “This powerful and influential union clearly understands the potential that passing the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment and unleashing the many uses of the cannabis plant will have for Ohio. The movement of this plant into a legal, regulated framework will add a compassionate treatment option to alleviate the suffering of so many Ohioans, while simultaneously bringing new green jobs and economic development to Ohio. The Ohio Rights Group is honored to have the UFCW walk hand in hand with thousands of devoted parents and brave veterans, hard-working farmers and forward thinking doctors, nurses, police officers and business leaders, all united to win passage of this amendment in 2014.”

With more than 75,000 members throughout the state, the UFCW is one of Ohio’s largest private sector unions, and an important voice on issues like health care, workplace standards and economic development that work for working families. In the U.S., the UFCW represents thousands of medical cannabis workers in six states and the District of Columbia and unites them in its Cannabis Workers Rising project.

ORG at Apeks Supercritical on 1/11/14

ORG @ Apeks

Apeks Supercritical hosted the Ohio Rights Group for a tour of its facilities in Johnstown, Ohio, on Saturday, January 11, 2014, at 2:00 pm.  Immediately following the tour, Apeks Supercritical President and military service veteran Andy Joseph presented the Ohio Rights Group with a check for a pledged donation of $10,000.  The purpose of this pledge is to spur similar donations, with the goal of obtaining at least nine others to match it for a total of $100,000. The Ohio Rights Group will largely uORG_John_accepting_Apeks_check_-_1-11-14.jpgse the funds to hire disabled and out-of-work veterans to gather signatures for the proposed Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment.

Apeks Supercritical designs, builds, tests, and refines subcritical and supercritical CO2 botanical oil extraction systems, used in part for the extraction of these oils from cannabis and hemp in order to create concentrates for medicinal use.

Old Spice cologne once reminded many people of their grandfather. Now, thanks to former NFL player Isaiah Mustafa and a series of humorous television commercials, it probably brings to mind a guy on a horse with great abs.
