The Ohio Senate and House of Representatives will announce a series of bipartisan hearings on medical marijuana as early as this week, sources tell

The concept of recreational marijuana will not be included in the discussions, according to the source.

The focus by lawmakers will be on gauging support or opposition on the concept.

Gov. John Kasich told in November that he would be open to the legislature tapping Ohio medical resources to study if medical marijuana should be approved.
