Northeast Ohio could be getting 18 medical marijuana dispensaries following a proposal from the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy.

The Board developed draft dispensary districts after considering the following:

  • Established rules and regulations in other state medical marijuana programs
  • Patient populations
  • Consultation with regulators in other states
  • Ohio's population
  • Existing compliance resources for the State Board of Pharmacy
  • Access to major Ohio roadways

The Board is accepting public comment on the draft of the medical marijuana dispensary districts until August 11. Comments can be submitted at MMCPRules@Pharmacy.Ohio.gov. For more information on the Medical Marijuana Control Program, visit medicalmarijuana.ohio.gov.
