CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The anti-monopoly amendment, Issue 2, passed in Ohio Tuesday night. 

Issue 2, also known as the anti-monopoly amendment, prohibits any petitioner from using the Ohio Constitution to grant a monopoly, oligopoly, or cartel for their exclusive financial benefit or to establish a preferential tax status. 

The Issue was added by state lawmakers concerned that Issue 3 would grant a monopoly to marijuana grow facilities.

Though Issue 3 failed, a “Yes” vote on Issue 2 will prohibit special interest groups from amending the constitution to create monopolies, oligopolies or cartels.

Nineteen states have constitutional provisions banning monopolies.
