Ohio overwhelming passed two voter issues in November 2023.
The first, a constitutional amendment allowing women to control their own bodies and make personal decisions about having children with their doctor’s advice.
The second item passed in the most recent election was the legalization of recreational marijuana.
The gerrymandered republican state legislature immediately began proposing laws to circumvent the will of the majority of Ohio voters.
While the access to health care amendment will harder to undermine, the marijuana law is already under attack with proposals to overtax and under provide access to marijuana, as well as denying the ability to grow a small number of plants in private homes.
These proposals are outrageous and I can only hope that voters finally get the message and remove these so called representatives of the people from office in the next election.
