Akron DSA is proud that Ohioans voted to legalize cannabis for recreational use in Tuesday’s election. As a chapter, we’re happy to have played a small role: we knocked on more than 650 doors in multiple cities in the greater Akron area to help encourage voter turnout.
Issue 2’s passage is not the end: Future efforts around cannabis must include prosocial considerations such as criminal record expungement, youth prevention efforts (including bans/restrictions on deceptive packaging that looks like candy), and measures to protect workers and patrons from second-hand smoke.
