Many marijuana questions linger

DEAR EDITOR:

As the new year begins, a new industry rises in Ohio — the medical Marijuana industry with dispensaries opening across Ohio.

Hundreds, if not thousands, will benefit from the bi-products of this plant, but some lingering questions really never were addressed.

How long after I take my medication can I drive? How long after I take my medication can I operate machinery or work in manufacturing environment and most important can I hold a CCW permit to carry a concealed weapon? These are some very important issues that should have been addressed before the law went into effect. Also, does an employer have the right to refuse employment to someone on medical marijuana? The state now has let the door open for lengthy litigation on these issues.

I hope that at no time will the people of Ohio ever approve marijuana for recreational use. If you don’t want the devil in the house, don’t open the front door.
