Ohio lawmakers plan to unveil medical marijuana proposal

The Ohio House is expected to roll out a medical marijuana proposal today, while the Senate also is winding down its examination of the issue as the two chambers consider action ahead of a potential ballot issue this November.

“I think this is going to be a joint effort,” said Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, R-Clarksville.

The House and Senate have used separate hearings to gather information on the medical marijuana legalization effort.

“I think they’ve got somewhat of a consensus about what we’ll be talking about and what that consensus looks like,” Rosenberger said of the House task force.

Rep. Kirk Schuring, R-Canton, and Sen. Dave Burke, R-Marysville, the point people on the topic, have been in regular contact. Burke has been working on a bill, but as of now, the Senate appears content to allow the House to start the legislative process.
