Since the movement of the Ohio Marijuana Policy Project, laws have slowly been put in order to allow the use of medical marijuana in Ohio. Many Americans not just in Ohio wish to see the bill pass the regulates the use of marijuana for medical purposes. However in June of 2013 the House Bill 153 which would allow medical marijuana did not make it through legislation. The Ohio Right Group ORG, has fought back to trending to continue to get medical marijuana legalized in the state. The group has created the Ohio Cannabis Right Amendment, this bill would allow 18 and up to use medical marijuana. It would also allow a person in Ohio to grow hemp for use in products such as clothing or paper which can bring a large amount of revenue to the state. Although the legalization of marijuana may be on the horizon, many people are still in search of Ohio Marijuana Rehab and Treatment Centers. Many of these fail to provide evidence that marijuana is truly addictive but treat people for a disease regardless.
