COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A key backer of recreational cannabis legalization in Ohio says he and his business partners are pursuing commercial, legislative and ballot plans to continue expanding access to safe cannabis and related products.

Ian James, president and founder of Green Light Acquisitions LLC, the unsuccessful ballot campaign to legalize both medical and recreational marijuana in 2015. Ohio has since legalized medical marijuana regardless of the failure of Issue 3.

James said Tuesday, June 5, 2018, that his business has developed a line of lotions, lotions and soaps using cannabidiol that he’s advertising to large national retailers, such as Urban Outfitters and Sephora.

He’s pursuing another constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana for personal use that would likely show up on the 2020 ballot, while pushing bills to purge criminal records of former marijuana offenders and to open Ohio to legal hemp cultivation.
