Ohio residents will not be voting in 2019 on whether to broadly legalize marijuana in the state.
Ohio Families for Change, which backed the Marijuana Rights and Regulations amendment, deactivated its Facebook page and website and also closed out its campaign finance account with the state on April 18th.
“Ohio Families for Change, which is a former client of mine, has no plans on advancing their ballot language in either 2019 or 2020,” former campaign spokesman Jonathan Varner said to The Enquirer.
“No one’s going to pony up millions of dollars without some clear advantage for them,” Varner said.
No statewide ballot issues are expected to appear on the Nov. 5 ballot in the state.
