Husted Praises High Court’s Decision in ResponsibleOhio Ballot Title

COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted released the following statement in the Ohio Supreme Court’s ruling in The State ex rel. ResponsibleOhio vs. Ohio Ballot Board et al., specifically the court’s affirmation of the State Issue 3 ballot title where the court stated that “Husted’s ballot title is not ‘inaccurate, incorrect, or illegal,’ ‘confusing, misleading, or argumentative,’ or persuasive in nature.” The following may be attributed to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted:

“Today, the Ohio Supreme Court agreed with me, the dictionary, common sense and many news publications across our state that State Issue 3 would create a marijuana monopoly in Ohio and that the voters deserve to be given that information before casting their ballots.

“I have an obligation to present the people of Ohio with accurate information to help them make an honest and educated decision on Election Day.

“I will convene the Ohio Ballot Board this week where we should easily be able to make the technical changes the court requested to the language it approved so county boards of elections across our state can make final preparations for this fall’s election.”
