Columbus, OH – Switchboards at Ohio legislator’s offices have been lighting up as activists and medical marijuana patients seek to garner support for a pending medical marijuana bill.

The Ohio Medical Marijuana Act, initiated by the Ohio Patient Network and sponsored by Rep. Kenneth Carano (D), would protect medical pot patients from prosecution if passed.

The bill awaits introduction to the Ohio House of Representatives because Rep. Carano has indicated that he intends to gain the support of four Republican cosponsors before the bill debuts in the House. In the meantime, activists and patients are busying themselves distributing educational materials and making phone calls to urge their representatives to support the Ohio Medical Marijuana Act.
