Live Coverage of Ohio Marijuana Legalization Vote Results with “Radical” Russ Belville on CannabisRadio.com
Tonight, Ohio votes to become the fifth US state to legalize adult personal use of marijuana and I, “Radical” Russ Belville, will be in Columbus, Ohio, bringing you the live vote results for MarijuanaPolitics.com and CannabisRadio.com.
Coverage begins at 6pm Eastern with The Russ Belville Show, followed by Toker Talk Radio at 7pm, then Marijuana Election Night 2015 at 8pm as the polls close in Ohio and the results come in. Joining me for The Russ Belville Show will be campaign representatives from ResponsibleOhio, the group fighting for marijuana legalization.
Also scheduled to appear is Garrett Greenlee from the International Cannabinoid Institute (ICI), which will build a $24 million medical cannabis research facility in Ohio when the measure passes. ICI will be the home of researcher Dr. Sue Sisley, the only federally-approved cannabis researcher in the field of medical marijuana for veterans suffering from PTSD.
Other guests will include the parents of desperately ill children who are banking on passage of the measure that also legalizes medical marijuana, specifically the cannabinoid extracts proven helpful for children with seizure disorders, and local Ohio marijuana activists who have fought long and hard to end adult marijuana prohibition.
Toker Talk Radio features the internet’s only live talk-radio call-in number (971-533-7111) for discussion of marijuana law reform. Callers from across the country are welcome to call in with their questions and comments about Ohio’s confusing legalization vote, which includes the legalization measure Issue 3, but also includes the anti-monopoly Issue 2 that could undermine and invalidate Issue 3.
Vote results should come in sometime after 8pm Eastern and I will be live streaming them on CannabisRadio.com and live blogging them on MarijuanaPolitics.com. This will mark the fourth straight Marijuana Election Night coverage I’ve provided live via internet radio streaming. I was there in Oakland, California, at Prop 19 headquarters in 2010 as that initiative began the national conversation on marijuana legalization. In 2012, I was in Seattle, Washington, and brought you live reporters from Portland, Oregon, and Denver, Colorado, as two of those three states voted to legalize marijuana. In 2014, I was in Portland, Oregon, covering our election results and those up in Alaska as they legalized marijuana.
