If Ohioans approve Issue 2 on Tuesday, Nov. 7, using marijuana recreationally will be legal for adults 21 and older. All except for gun owners, which should come as no surprise due to federal restrictions.

He warned that it is imperative to honestly fill out the ATF’s questionnaire under penalty of perjury, including the fifth question that asks about marijuana or any controlled substance use.
