Ohio’s Upcoming Cannabis Legalization Lobby Day Attracts Diverse Organizations

The Ohio Cannabis Lobby Day 2021, taking place on October 13 is meant to educate legislators and the general public about the need for medical marijuana patients rights as well as to legalize and regulate legal weed.

The event, taking place at Ohio’s State House Atrium, will be hosted by Ohio Cannabis Live, a news and dispensary review organization with the assistance of Representative Juanita Brent of Cleveland and the Ohio Appalachian chapter of NORML.
In a recent press conference, Rep. Brent addressed the lack of diversity, equity and inclusion in the process of opening new dispensaries.

Brent highlighted that “of the 114 dispensary owners in Ohio, only 9 are people of color” and that when it comes to license ownership, the lottery system was not enough to deal realistically with racial disparities.
