Where's Weed

Published on May 7, 2015

ResponsibleOhio's amendment to legalize marijuana recreationally and medically in Ohio has picked up a new sponsor. Kroger's former executive lawyer, Paul Heldman, has decided to invest in one of the ten would-be legal marijuana farms if the amendment passes. Heldman's son struggles with seizures do to his epilepsy, so he understands the dire need for medical marijuana law.

"As the father of a son living with epilepsy, I know first-hand what it's like to watch a loved one suffer when he could benefit from access to medical marijuana," Heldman said in a statement. "Until we legalize marijuana in Ohio and throughout our country, rigorous scientific research into its applications will not be possible and thousands, perhaps millions, of people will suffer needlessly."
