CINCINNATI, Ohio– Former boy-band member and Cincinnati native, Nick Lachey, is speaking out on the failure of Issue 3. It would have made Ohio the fifth state to legalize recreational and medical marijuana.
Lachey, who was featured in an ad in favor of Issue 3, tweeted: “While I may not agree, the people of Ohio have spoken and that’s the way it’s supposed to work. Change takes time.”
The measure known as Issue 3 on Tuesday’s ballot would have allowed adults 21 and older to use, purchase or grow certain amounts of marijuana. The constitutional amendment would have established a regulatory and taxation scheme while creating a network of 10 growing facilities.
The former lead singer of 98 Degrees could have reportedly made a lot of money if Issue 3 passed. The Washington Post reported Lachey and a few other people would co-own a 29-acre weed farm outside of Akron.
