Ohio Ballot Beat Issue 1

Season 23 Episode 66 | 55m 45s

In the 2018 general election, there is only one statewide measure on the ballot: Issue 1, To Reduce Penalties for Crimes of Obtaining, Possessing, and Using Illegal Drugs. Proponents argue that the measure would direct non-violent drug offenders to treatment rather than to prison. Opponents believe the measure would make Ohio one of the most lenient drug crime laws in the nation.
