Some of you may have missed it, but the ResponsibleOhio bus was parked in front of the Union County Court House recently as part of the Green Rush Bus Tour. The multi-million dollar push to legalize marijuana includes the use of a new mascot by the name of “Buddie”. As described in The Columbus Dispatch, “His head is a giant green marijuana bud with a face plastered with a smile from ear to ear. He wears a white body suit with a "B" on his chest, green gloves and boots, and blue cape. He has six-pack abs, bulging biceps, and powerful thighs.”
