Former Cincinnati Police Chief Tom Streicher is the latest backer in the efforts to legalize marijuana in Ohio. 

ResponsibleOhio announced Thursday the endorsements of Streicher and civil rights attorney Scott Greenwood.

“Our state spends over $120 million per year to enforce marijuana prohibition, even though we all know these laws do not work. Law enforcement should instead be able to spend their time and their resources cracking down on the real criminals. ResponsibleOhio's amendment will do just that, paving the way for a better, safer future for our children and grandchildren,” said Streicher in a statement on the organization's website.

Streicher was the Police Chief from 1999 until his retirement from the force in 2011.
