An Update on Ohio's Medical Marijuana Program

by Faith Fidura May 08, 2018

Here are some quick updates on the Ohio Cannabis Chamber of Commerce (OCCC) and the Ohio Medical Cannabis Industry. 

Ohio Medical MarijuanaAs most of you know, in the fall of 2017 the state of Ohio released the Tier 1 and Tier 2 cultivation permits. This past February the State of Ohio had a mandatory meeting with all cultivation permit holders to update them and to gauge the program for the remaining permits to be issued for testing, processing, and dispensaries. 

  • Most Cultivators are doing their build outs now
  • Dispensary Licenses are to be issued in May.
  • Testing Licenses are to be issued in May
  • Processing Licenses are to be issued in June.
  • Doctors are now being certified to issue Medical Marijuana Cards.

Ohio's medical marijuana program legally must be operating by September 8th, but some industry insiders have questioned whether that will happen. 

Even though there have been setbacks in the program, the state says they are on track.
