Nick Lachey among investors in Ohio marijuana grow center

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Ohio resident and former boy band star Nick Lachey is among five investors in one of 10 marijuana grow centers that would be created across the state under a proposed ballot issue.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports ( ) ResponsibleOhio is attempting to get an issue on the Nov. 3 ballot that would legalize marijuana for medical and personal use by adults 21 years or older.

The ballot issue would limit the growing to specific locations where groups of investors financing the operations own or have the option to buy property.

The 98 Degrees singer, most recently a television actor, is hoping to bring a grow center to Hudson.

ResponsibleOhio estimates the initiative would generate about $21.5 million in annual tax revenue for Summit County and its townships and municipalities.
