Ohio Attorney General studying possible medical marijuana plan

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is studying the plausibility of a tightly crafted medical marijuana proposal.

DeWine says it's logical as the state debates whether to legalize marijuana to explore what the alternatives are.

DeWine, a Republican who opposes legalizing recreational marijuana, says he's talked to many people around Ohio in favor of medical marijuana if they could be assured it wouldn't be abused.

DeWine said it's worth studying what is happening in other states when it comes to medical marijuana. He stopped short of saying the goal would be to undercut the widespread legalization of the drug in Ohio or what form a proposal might take.
