    Ohio senators want to make major changes to marijuana law OK’d by voters, ax home grow – By Jessie Balmert (Cincinnati Enquirer) / Dec 4, 2023

    Lawmakers in the Ohio Senate want to eliminate growing marijuana at home, increase the tax rate and change who gets the money from the state’s new legal marijuana program

    Lawmakers in the Ohio Senate want to eliminate growing marijuana at home, increase the tax rate and change who gets the money from the state’s new legal marijuana program, according to changes announced Monday.

    The overhaul, which was added to an unrelated liquor bill Monday, comes after Ohio voters approved legal marijuana in a 57-43% vote last month. The Ohio Senate plans to vote on the new House Bill 86 on Wednesday.

    Sen. Rob McColley, R-Napoleon, said Ohio voters wanted those 21 and older to have access to marijuana products, and these changes don’t stop that. Sen. Bill DeMora, D-Columbus, said the proposed changes go against the will of the voters.
