SANDUSKY, Ohio — After a four-month delay, patients in Ohio on Wednesday are able to buy medical marijuana.

Patients entered The Forest dispensary in Sandusky to receive the first batch of medical marijuana.

There will be medical marijuana on the shelves, but the system designed to restock the supply after the first product sells out still has a long way to go before it's completely built.

There are only five dispensaries approved to open and four of them will be open on January 16 for patients.

  • CY+, 180 Main Street in Wintersville in Jefferson County
  • Ohio Valley Natural Relief LLC, 840 Canton Road in Wintersville
  • The Botanist, located at 3840 Greentree Ave. SW in Canton
  • The Forest Sandusky, LLC, 1651 Tiffin Ave. in Sandusky

All but The Botanist, 30133 Euclid Ave. in Wickliffe, will open Wednesday at 9 a.m. to patients.
