Ohio announces 56 sites where medical marijuana will be sold

Ohio announces 56 sites where medical marijuana will be sold”

Three dispensaries were awarded provisional licenses to operate in the Mahoning Valley- one in each of Trumbull, Mahoning, and Columbiana counties.

With just three months until the state of Ohio's medical marijuana program is mandated to go live, the Ohio Pharmacy Board has announced their list of licensed dispensaries.

Overall, almost 20 applications were turned in from sites asking to operate a dispensary in Mahoning, Trumbull, or Columbiana county. Cresco Labs Ohio LLC on Main Street in Wintersville in Jefferson County was approved for license.

Ohio's 2016 medical marijuana law says the program must begin September 8, although many lawmakers have expressed doubt the state will meet that deadline.

The Board of Pharmacy has been getting background checks and verifying that proposed locations are at least 500 feet from schools and churches.

Dispensaries must pay a $5,000 licensing fee, a $70,000 certificate of operation fee, and $70,000 biennial license renewal fees.

Toledo City Councilman Tom Waniewski, whose district encompasses the future Sylvania Avenue location, said he planned to regulate the dispensary as he would any other business. "If it's legal and it's regulated, we'll make sure it conforms to the pharmacy board and local regulations in Toledo".

Overall, there were 376 applications for the medical marijuana dispensaries.

OH has selected 12 large growers and 12 small growers to participate in its medical marijuana program, including Ascension BioMedical LLC in Oberlin and Farkas Farms LLC in Grafton.

In total, approximately 60 dispensaries were licensed across the state.

But the board already has staff trained to evaluate the dispensaries once they open their doors in September, Ms. Simon added.
