Watch: Why Ohio Needs A Monopoly On Growing Operations

Update: Nov. 4, 2015: Ohioans overwhelmingly voted down Issue 3.

Ian James - head of the pro-legalization group Responsible Ohio - told CNN why Issue 3 includes the controversial limitation of just 10 licensed growers in the state.

James also points out that additional licenses may be issued after four years of legalization.
