MARIJUANA AMENDMENT UPDATE
The initiative put forward by Responsible Ohio has cleared all of the technical hurdles and will appear as Issue 3 on the November ballot. In mid-August, Ohioans Against Marijuana Monopolies kicked-off its advocacy. The Coalition is made up of a number of business, healthcare, and political groups, including the Ohio Farm Bureau, the Ohio State Medicaid Association, the Ohio Manufacturers Association, OACBHA, the Ohio Council, the Drug-Free Action Alliance, the Children’s Hospital Association, and more. The Coalition will look to raise funds for their opposition work and they will also rely heavily on grassroots activities in communities throughout Ohio. Responsible Ohio is reporting that they expect to spend up to $20 million on their campaign to legalize marijuana. Issue 3 will be on the November ballot alongside Issue 2, the legislative initiative to prohibit monopolies within the Ohio constitution. If Issue 2 passes, the marijuana legalization amendment may not be a legal change to the State’s Constitution. It is likely that the Supreme Court will make a final decision on the matter if both Issue 2 and Issue 3 pass in November.
Drug-Free Action Alliance (DFAA) has fact sheets available for communities to educate citizens, policymakers and leadership about the impact of marijuana legalization.
recovery is beautiful
Members of the Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities (OACBHA) have created a BluePrint that is a five-year plan for moving Ohio toward a Recovery-Oriented System of Care (ROSC) that transitions from a focus on acute care to one that focuses on recovery management to help individuals not only get well, but to stay well. As envisioned in the framework, ADAMH/MHR Boards are the “hub” for their local communities that coordinate across systems to ensure that local entities are prepared to support individuals, families, and communities through a system of addiction and mental health prevention, wellness, crisis intervention, treatment, and recovery support programs and services. The following five principles will be at the forefront in moving a Recovery-Oriented System of Care forward:
Focusing on Clients and Families-healthcare is personal and most effective when delivered based on the needs and values of the individual receiving care
Ensuring Timely Access to Care-access to a continuum of high quality, integrated care that is available in a timely manner
Promoting Healthy, Safe and Drug-Free Communities-availability of a continuum of services that promote the health, wellness, and safety of individuals and communities
Prioritizing Accountable and Outcome-Driven Financing-maximizing the use of federal, state and local funds to meet locally-identified outcomes to align resources and improve coordination between local community stakeholders
Locally Managing Systems of Care-healthcare is delivered locally, and individuals and communities are best served when the healthcare system is designed and managed locally.
