It seems nice, but I always question the m.o. of big business…..-UA

CLEVELAND — An Ohio insurance mogul is seeking formal proposals for a vote on legalizing medical marijuana in the state.

Billionaire Peter Lewis is the chairman of Progressive Corp., based in the Cleveland suburb of Mayfield Heights. The request put out through his attorney notes that voters in 15 other states have passed ballot issues making pot legal for qualified patients. Lewis’ call for proposals says the goal is to create an Ohio law that would serve as a model for other states.

The advocacy group NORML tells The Plain Dealer of Cleveland that Lewis has contributed up to $60 million toward the medical marijuana cause since the 1980s.

A spokesman for Ohio’s House speaker tells the newspaper a medical marijuana bill in the Legislature is not a high priority.

  1. A spokesman for Ohio’s House speaker tells the newspaper a medical marijuana bill in the Legislature is not a high priority. WELL, WELL….SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THOSE OF US IN FAVOR OF IT NEED TO INSURE THAT THERE WILL BE SOME UNEMPLOYED POLITICIANS IF OUR WILL IS NOT DONE BY THOSE WE ELECTED TO CARRY OUT OUR WILL. THIS ISN’T ABOUT LIBERAL OR CONSERVATIVE, IT’S ABOUT WHAT “WE THE PEOPLE” DEMAND OF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS & IF THEY CAN’T DO THE JOBS WE SENT THEM TO THE STATE HOUSE TO DO, I’M SURE THERE’S OTHERS THAT WILL HAPPILY TAKE THEIR PLACES. MAYBE EVEN SOME SMART ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE CAN FIRE THEM (ALMOST) AT WILL IF THEY DON’T LISTEN TO US. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER BATTLE IN THE WAR OF TAKING OUR COUNTRY BACK FROM THE GOVERNMENT, EVERYBODY REALLY NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND & COMPREHEND THIS, LIBERAL & CONSERVATIVE ALIKE. I’M A CONSERVATIVE & TIRED OF HEARING MY PARTY TALK ABOUT “PERSONAL FREEDOM” & FAILING TO ACT ON IT WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY PRESENTS ITSELF. IT’S EVERY BIT AS BAD AS THE LIBERALS IF ALL YOU DO IS TALK ABOUT FREEDOM & DO NOTHING TO ENSURE IT, OR BLATANTLY LEGISLATE AGAINST IT……………PEACE, Y’ALL !!!!!!!!!
