With so much going on in our world, we sometimes miss important issues. Please feel free to share any headlines or new developments we may have missed providing they come from reliable and credible sources.  In other words, please do not post any missed headlines form far right ‘news’ sources or regurgitate their Russian propaganda unless you’re trying to point out that the far-right extremist in our country and elsewhere actually believe their own BS or Russian disinformation.   The same applies to what is currently happening in Israel. We also ask that you provide a link to your source so folks can read it if they want. Please do not make any claims that you cannot factually validate or verify.

When will recreational marijuana be purchasable in Ohio?

 It is the second day recreational marijuana is legal in the state, but not everything about the law is set in stone yet including any place to legally buy it. As the law is currently written, it likely won’t be until the fall when the first dispensary opens.   

The Department of Commerce still needs to set the rules and regulations for sale and then issue licenses for recreational dispensaries. The law gives the department of commerce nine months to set rules and issue licenses. That means there might not be a recreational dispensary open until September.
