Democrats Ask Drug Policy Office to Do More to Combat Opioid Epidemic
Twenty Democratic senators are asking the Office of National Drug Control Policy to do more to combat the opioid epidemic, according to the Associated Press.
A bill that would legalize medical marijuana in Ohio and allow certified users to grow the plant for personal medical use has been introduced in the state legislature, the Columbus Dispatch reported April 6.
The measure was introduced by Rep. Kenny Yuko and five cosponsors; the Drug Policy Alliance of Ohio helped draft the bill.
A medical-marijuana measure died in the state legislature last year; backers of the Yuko bill said the legislation has significant changes from the failed bill, SB-343.
