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.

If you're thinking about nibbling a cannabis edible before getting frisky, you might want to think again. Marijuana edibles are great for a lot of things. They're inconspicuous, they don't leave a whiff of marijuana's tell-tale smell behind, and they can be made into just about any snack you like.
