Benjamin Krutko works in the social medical marijuana services sector.Benjamin Krutko LAKEWOOD — Citizens in Ohio are entitled and permitted to cultivate various plants and flowers that are toxic and even deadly; digitalis; larkspur; and belladonna. But cannabis, with no overdose fatalities on record, remains illegal for individuals to cultivate in the privacy of their property.

Ohio is not Colorado –but it deprives itself, in the face of declining state revenues, of the more than $1 billion that state has made through cannabis sales. Ohio’s standards were passed into law by a body that had no interest in taking up decriminalization or examining with any rigor the legal standards of other states in relation to taxes, individual use, and cultivation.
