Issue 1 advocates an amendment to the Ohio Constitution aimed at accomplishing a number of goals with regard to sentencing and treatment for low-level drug offenders.

The question before us involves a prudential determination as to whether Issue 1 is appropriately conceived to achieve these and its other stated goals. Are the provisions the right prescription for the problem?”   The Ohio Bishops
