Ted Strickland visits Warren, talks marijuana legalization

Ted Strickland visits Warren to support Doug Franklin and talk marijuana legalization

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Former governor and U.S. Senate candidate, Ted Strickland, was in Warren on Sunday supporting current Warren Mayor, Doug Franklin, in his reelection.

Strickland also shared his thoughts on the issue of legalizing marijuana for medical and recreational use.

“If this was a straight marijuana legalization vote, I would vote yes. I am troubled by the monopoly aspect of it,” he said.

Stickland is for recreational and medicinal use of marijuana, but if Issue 2, the Ohio Initiated Monopolies Amendment, passes, it will give a limited number people power.
