Ohio has decriminalized cannabis, but this doesn't mean no charges - just not as severe as they once were. As far as individual cities go: - In September 2015, Toledo residents voted 70%–30% to depenalize misdemeanor cannabis offenses, with no fines and no jail time for: possession or cultivation of under 200 grams, possession of hashish under 10 grams, possession of paraphernalia, and gifts of under 20 grams. - In June 2019, Cincinnati City Council voted 5–3 to eliminate all penalties for possession of up to 100 grams of cannabis except in cases of public use. - Dayton residents voted 73%–27% to approve an advisory referendum urging city leaders to decriminalize cannabis. City commissioners then voted unanimously in January to eliminate all penalties for possession of up to 100 grams. - Columbus City Council voted unanimously to reduce the penalty to a $10 fine for possession of up to 100 grams and a $25 fine for between 100 and 200 grams. Possession of paraphernalia was also reduced to a $10 fine. - Cleveland City Council voted 15–2 to eliminate penalties for possession of up to 200 grams of cannabis. Other jurisdictions in Ohio that have approved decriminalization ordinances include: Bellaire (2016), Logan (2016), Newark (2016), Roseville (2016), Athens (2017), Fremont (2018), Norwood (2018), Oregon (2018), Windham (2018), Bremen (2019), Nelsonville (2019), Northwood (2019), Plymouth (2020), Adena (2020), Glouster (2020), Jacksonville (2020), and Trimble (2020).
THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, and it is the main psychoactive component of cannabis. It is a cannabinoid. A cannabinoid is a compound produced by the cannabis plant that effects the endocannabinoid system, which is a system of naturally-occuring cannabinoids like anandamide & 2-AG, the cannabinoid receptors CB1 & CB2, and the enzymes that break cannabinoids down, like FAAH. THC attaches itself to CB1 receptors, producing euphoric effects. THC is particularly useful as an analgesic (painkiller), antiemetic (nausea & vomiting beater), sleep aid, appetite stimulant and, in low doses, an anxiolytic (anxiety-beater). Even small amounts of THC added to CBD improves CBD's efficacy and anti-inflammatory effects. THC can be useful for treating chronic pain, insomnia, cachexia / wasting syndrome, autism, PTSD and cancer, amongat several other health problems, CBD stands for cannabidiol, and unlike THC doesn't have intoxicating effects. In fact, it can be said to have anti-psychoactive effects, as CBD can be used to balance out the high of THC. A CBD:THC ratio of 1:1 has fewer psychoactive effects compared to a product that is mostly THC, for example. CBD has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic (anti-spasm), antiseizure, antipsychotic and mood-improving effects. CBD is particularly useful for chronic & neuropathic pain, epilepsy & seizure disorders, mood & mental health disorders (anxiety, depression, PTSD), diabetes, arthritis and autoimmune disorders such as Crohn's. There are several other cannabinoids, most notably tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV, which actually has appetite-suppressing properties that could be useful for treating obesity), cannabigerol (CBG, which has antibacterial properties), cannabichromene (CBC, which is also a potent anti-depressant) and cannabinol (CBN, which has sedative effects on par with stronger benzos and barbiturates, but with far less addiction). These all have a number of therapeutic effects, especially when combined with each other and terpenes like pinene, myrcene and humulene. Cannabis is a plant packed full of therapeutic compounds, many of which can be used to battle stress & inflammation - a problem that is a part of almost every health problem, whether it's depression or multiple sclerosis. Battling this inflammation using cannabinoids and terpenes - which are much safer compared to opioids and benzodiazepines - could be an answer. Another reason why cannabis is medicine is because our bodies produce their own cannabinoids, naturally (endocannabinoids). The main two cannabinoids include anadamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG). When there is a shortage of these naturally-occuring cannabinoids, or our bodies aren't producing or utilizing them properly, then this is when widespread inflammation and further health problems arise. Cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant (phytocannabinoids) can be used to help replace these endocannabinoid shortages. So cannabis is medicine because: 1) It contains a number of anti-inflammatory compounds. These can be used to target multiple receptor systems, meaning medical pot can be used to reduce or even replace pharmaceutical pills. 2) Cannabis is far safer compared to many prescription medications. Opioids play a direct part in thousands of deaths every year. Cannabis, meanwhile, usually does not. 3) Phytocannabinoids can be used to replace naturally-occuring endocannabinoids during times of shortages.
