First off, what’s the need for something like this? We already have anti-monopoly laws at the federal level with the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. Why have what amounts to a duplicate law?
The way in which Issue 2 is phrased also raises questions.
It looks like there is some sort of attempt to make constitutionalists think that they will lose the right to amend the Ohio Constitution if it fails. But that isn’t the case. Any attempt to do so would violate the First Amendment of our Constitution.
Passing Issue 2 will, however, make it more difficult to address perceived wrongs at the state level. That’s not to mention the garbage at the federal level.
Issue 3 is straightforward and, though I don’t indulge, taking marijuana out of the hands of criminals is a good idea.
