For the first time, Ohio residents will vote on legalizing recreational and medical marijuana at the same time. One of the issues up for a vote would allow commercial marijuana cultivation on only 10 farms, which are all owned by investors who back said issue.

If it is legalized, what right does the government have to intervene and say who can and can’t grow it to make money off of it? What you’ve got happening here is simple: this is the corporate takeover of the marijuana business.

I think marijuana is going to eventually become legalized in all 50 states and the corporations want to grab onto all that money. If corporations could get the government to help them, that’s what you’re going to see happen.
