State Sen. Dave Burke Talks About the Dangers of Synthetic Drugs
State Senators Dave Burke (R-Marysville) and Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) today announced details for a statewide tour to gather input from Ohioans on whether marijuana should be decriminalized for limited medical use.
"We believe that changing the Constitution should be the absolute last step in any public process, not the first," Burke said. "The House and Senate are taking separate approaches with the same goal to gain better understanding for Ohioans' wishes on this subject. Since November, I have been working with Representative Kirk Schuring and look forward to continuing this working relationship going forward."
“It is important to me that Marion is included in this program, because not only do we have great resources in our K-12 system, but we also have higher education and technical education opportunities available as well,” said Burke. “This program will help our students find a pathway to a brighter future in my hometown.”
