State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain), a member of the Ohio House Select Committee on Medical Marijuana, released the following statement on today’s unanimous committee passage of House Bill 523, legislation to legalize medical marijuana in Ohio:

“Over the past months we have heard dozens of stories from Ohioans who are truly tormented with terrible afflictions; adults with chronic conditions, children and babies with seizure disorders, and veterans with PTSD. It has been my intention all the while to produce legislation that would help all of them find some relief from their suffering. I believe House Bill 523 does exactly that, while balancing the health and comfort of patients with the safety and wellbeing of our state. I look forward to a vote of the full House very soon.”
