The Gubernatorial Climate for Therapeutic Cannabis in Ohio

Both Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate Ed Fitzgerald and possible Libertarian Party candidate Charlie Earl have made statements in support of medical cannabis, while Governor Kasich remains opposed.

As stated on his website, Earl would “Move to include industrial hemp as a crop for Ohio’s farmers and a resource for Ohio’s businesses.” Hemp is the source of medicinal non-psychoactive CBD oils that are now legal in some states. He both endorsed and embraced the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment last March.

Cincinnati.com reported that Fitzgerald recently announced his support by stating, “"There are people that are suffering from conditions that medical marijuana can alleviate, especially those chronic pain types of conditions." 

The same article noted that, while sympathetic to the plight of epileptic children who seem to benefit from cannabis oils, Governor Kasich remains unsupportive and reticent pending recommendations from medical professionals.

“We the People” have spoken loudly and clearly. A powerful statement of support can be found in the 100,000+ signatures of registered Ohio voters that volunteers have so far collected for the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment. Because of this remarkable achievement, our movement is now exercising its influence in Ohio’s gubernatorial race, as two of the three declared candidates have come out in favor of our issue.

Thirty Ohio Counties Have Their Minimum Signatures

Petition counts confirm that thirty Ohio counties have met their 5% signature minimums as part of the 44-county requirement for placing the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment on the ballot.

The procedures for ballot placement of a constitutional amendment mandate that signat

ures are to be obtained from at least 44 of Ohio's 88 counties, and that 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, which in the OCRA's case was 2010.

The map shows the minimum signatures needed in each Ohio county. County-based signature gathering for the Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment is led by County Captains. If you are interested in gathering signatures or leading a county, please visit our Volunteer page, select your county, fill out the form and hit submit. Someone will be in touch. Keep up the great work, Ohio!

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.
