OBP Releases Proposed Medical Marijuana Rules

As many as 40 stores could dispense medical marijuana in Ohio under rules proposed by The Ohio Board of Pharmacy. The board also says additional dispensaries may be licensed, based on overall population, patient population and geographic distribution of dispensary sites. Licensed dispensary owners would have to pay a 5 thousand dollars application fee and an 80 dollar license fee every other year. The Ohio Medical Board also released proposed rules requiring doctors recommending marijuana to patients to have an active, unrestricted license and take two hours of continuing education classes.
