Recreational Marijuana Now Legal


Recreational marijuana is now legal in the state of Ohio.

It became legal at midnight, for those 21 and over.

One of the major changes in the state is that any adult can have up to 2.5oz of marijuana in their possession.

Every adult is also allowed to grow up to six marijuana plants or twelve plants if other adults live in the home.

A bill has been proposed in the House to increase taxes on recreational sales from Issue 2′s 10% to 20%, as well as create marketing restrictions.

The Senate is proposing other severe changes such as banning home growth, increasing taxes to 30%, and lowering the amount of marijuana someone can have on them.

No decision was made on those proposals, so Issue 2 moved forward as planned.
