This is just one of the many hundreds of issues that appeared on state-wide ballots last November. We all know that The House is now controlled by the Democrats and The Senate by the Republicans, but what about this Drug and Criminal Justice Policies Initiative on the Ohio ballot? Well, it was defeated.
By voting no, Ohioans essentially –
1. Did not reduce most drug possessions to misdemeanors.
2. People on probation can still be sent to prison for non-criminal violations.
3. Did NOT create a sentence “credits” program for participation in rehabilitation.
