Breaking: Cannabis Voting Results Delayed in Ohio


Ohioans will have to wait 90 minutes longer to find out if their state has become the first in the nation to legalize medical and recreational marijuana in a single ballot issue.

A Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge granted an emergency injunction filed by the pro-legalization group ResponsibleOhio asking voting hours be extended after voters in Cincinnati and surrounding communities experienced technical problems throughout the day.

Polls in the rest of the state closed at 7:30 p.m. EST.

The controversial Issue 3 would legalize marijuana and give exclusive growing rights to 10 locations across the state. Opponents call the plan a monopoly that will make a few rich people a lot richer.
