This Map Shows How Unpopular The Marijuana Monopoly Was In Ohio

On. Nov. 3, Ohio voters rejected Issue 3 - the proposal to legalize cannabis and create a marijuana monopoly through an amendment to the state constitution.

So how unpopular was Issue 3?

It was voted down in all of Ohio's 88 counties, making the monopoly question a resounding defeat. It came closest to passing in four counties - including Jefferson and areas around Cincinnati - where 42 percent of voters supported it.

In general, the issue was received more positively in cities such as Cleveland - where student voters were particularly favorable toward the amendment - as opposed to rural areas dominated by Republican-minded voters.
