Two big mistakes. That’s what the head of Responsible Ohio says the group made with Issue 3.

Ian James said Responsible Ohio will try again in 2016 and promises to have a better proposal.

He acknowledged that Buddy the mascot was a bad idea. He says it opened the group up to criticism that they were marketing to children.

The other mistake, he said, was limiting growth sites to only 10 locations that were controlled by those bankrolling the campaign.

James said next year, the plan will eliminate the monopoly-like structure and allow more home growing and retail options.
