"Legislation to legalize dispensing, growing and using marijuana for medical purposes has been introduced in the Ohio House.

The primary sponsor is Rep. Kenny Yuko, D-Richmond Heights, but there are five other sponsors. The Drug Policy Alliance in Ohio worked with Yuko in drafting the bill, which is similar to Senate Bill 343 from the last session but has significant changes, backers said.

Edward J. Orlett, a former state lawmaker who is Ohio representative for the California-based Drug Policy Alliance, said if the state doesn't pass the legislation, voters could take matters into their own hands. Michigan residents did that in passing a similar medical marijuana ballot issue in 2008."

What are your thoughts on this being passed? Will it happen? Will other states follow, if so which ones?

I would really like to see this passed, there's alot of people that could benifit from it. People need to open there eyes and see what it does for people who are stricken with an illness like cancer, etc.

Besides from it benifiting people who really need it. I think that arrests and fines that are given to people who have it illegally wouldn't be as harsh as it is now.

Just want to hear your thoughts on it.
