Ballot issue 3 will decide Marijuana legalization in Ohio and it has attracted most of the attention this elections season. However, the proposal to ban monopolies in the state constitution could matter more in the long run. Also, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan announced that Ohio will be receiving a $71 million grant to support charter schools.  

11:00 A bit like Christmas, election season seems to come earlier every year. But recently there was news that Ohio governor John Kasich may throw his hat into the presidential ring.
