[TD]Representative Robert F. Hagan (D-Youngstown) has introduced a measure that would put marijuana legalization on the ballot before state voters. House Joint Resolution 6 would place a question on the Ohio ballot asking voters to approve allowing people 21 or older to purchase and use marijuana. Under this proposal marijuana would be sold only by state-licensed establishments and would be subject to a 15 percent excise tax.
“With billions upon billions spent on the war on drugs with little progress to show for it, it is time for more-sensible drug policy in this country,” stated Representative Hagan.
To be placed on the ballot, HJR 6 would need to receive a three-fifths vote from the legislature. The full text of the measure is available online here.
If you live in Ohio, please take a moment to contact your Representative and urge him/her to support this historic legislation! It is time to let the people of Ohio decide for themselves whether or not it is time to legalize marijuana.

Thousands in Mexico light up for legalized marijuana. Puffs of smoke rose above the crowd as they marched through Mexico City, calling for legal recreational and medicinal use of the drug. While many appeared to enjoy the 13th annual Global Marijuana March, the event also highlights Mexico's growing drug problems. An estimated 70,000 people have died in drug-related violence as gangs battle for their share of the billion-dollar illicit industry. The president of the Mexican Association for Cannabis Studies says regulating the market for marijuana would take control away from criminals. The country is a major source and transit route of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other drugs that reach the U.S. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) ALBERTO SEPULVEDA, MARIJUANA USER SAYING: "Let's stop the hypocrisy. If in the United States there are four states ... where they are allowed to use it legally for recreational purposes we can't be penalized and kill each other here for the herb while in the United States they are smoking and laughing." In April 2009, Mexican lawmakers voted to legalise recreational marijuana, allowing users to carry up to 5 grams of the drug.
