An initiative to legalize cannabis that’s set to be placed on this November’s ballot in Ohio would create nearly 35,000 new jobs, according to a report released today by Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters.
“Legalization is coming to Ohio”, says Deters, who served as state treasurer from 1999 to 2004. “We need to accept the reality is going to happen”.
“Why in the world knowing this is coming would we let the bad guys have the money?” Deters wondered, noting that the black-market for cannabis continues to thrive . “I have come to believe the current laws hurt minorities”
