Nick Lachey Backs Ohio Marijuana Legislation, May End Up as Cannabis Farm Owner

Nick Lachey, Cincinnati native and restaurant owner, boy-band star and reality-TV notable, said Wednesday he is in favor of the ResponsibleOhio proposed constitutional amendment to legalize marijuana in Ohio. He has invested in the Summit County property that could be one of the 10 farms to grow legal cannabis if the initiative passes.

Lachey joins a list of local bold-face names, including NBA Hall of Fame player Oscar Robertson, NFL defensive end Frostee Rucker, fashion designer Nanette Lepore and philanthropist Barbara Gould, who have gone public with their support for legalization.

In a statement released by ResponsibleOhio, Lachey said, “Ohio is my home, and as a resident and local business owner I am proud to be part of a movement that has the potential to create jobs, reinvigorate the local economy and improve the safety of our communities. Passage of this proposal will result in much-needed economic development opportunities across Ohio, and update the state’s position on marijuana in a smart and safe way.” [Read more at the Cincinnati Enquirer]
