Ohio votes no to marijuana legalization

|By:, SA News Editor

Ohio voters have soundly rejected a measure that would have made it the first U.S. Midwestern state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana by nearly a two-to-one margin.

Analysts said the proposal was criticized for granting main backers of the measure cartel-like powers over the industry in the state for several years, an arrangement that rubbed many voters who supported legalization of the drug the wrong way.
