Addyson Benton, a four-year-old diagnosed with epilepsy, has been advertising the benefits of medical marijuana to promote Issue 3, according to WTHITV. The advertisements are sponsored by ResponsibleOhio.
Issue 3 is a proposed amendment that would allow adults 21 and older to use marijuana recreationally. Tomorrow residents of Ohio will determine whether or not to implement a medical marijuana market.
Voters will have a choice between Issue 2 and Issue 3. Voting yes on Issue 2 would result in no change in the current marijuana laws, meaning it would still be illegal.
Before Addyson began using medical marijuana, she would have seizures at least once a day. Now she uses THC patches and cannabis oil to control the seizures. Addyson’s mother, Heather Benton, said she is happy to promote the measure.
”People actually think these children are going to be smoking marijuana,” Heather said. “No child is smoking marijuana.”
