Following the announcement that Marijuana Policy Project has decided to withdraw its proposed ballot initiative, Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger released the following statement:

“Marijuana Policy Project choosing to withdraw its ballot initiative is welcomed news. But more importantly, it is an indication of the General Assembly's willingness to listen and respond to the will of Ohioans.

“I want to thank Reps. Kirk Schuring, Steve Huffman and Dan Ramos for their many hours of work through the House Medical Marijuana Task Force and for understanding the importance of the legislature leading on this issue. By shepherding the passage of House Bill 523, they offered a common-sense plan to Ohioans that provides a system for legalizing medical marijuana that is tightly regulated but accessible to those who need it.

“Thanks to the open and transparent process that began in the Ohio House in which voices from all sides of the debate were invited to testify, we were able to join together around a proposal that is both reflective of public opinion and protective of the state's constitution.”
