Judge Nap: Here's Why Ohio's Pot Vote Is 'Profoundly Significant'
Recreational marijuana is just a vote away from becoming legal today in Ohio, and polls are looking favorable.
Judge Andrew Napolitano said the state amendment is "profoundly significant because this is not Colorado, or Washington, or Oregon. This is 'Middle America' Ohio. This is a Republican state, with a Republican governor and a Republican legislature that the Republicans have to carry in order to win the presidency. And it looks like this is going to pass."
Another unique, and perhaps more controversial, aspect of the legislation is that it would make ten farms the sole growers of the product. That could be a cash bonanza for a select group of investors, including 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey, who's been campaigning for the amendment.
"Their theory is the government will regulate us and we will provide a quality product," Napolitano said on "Fox and Friends."
"Monopolies mean no competition, price stays up and quality doesn't improve."
