State Says Small Amounts Of Medical Marijuana Will Be Available In December
The Ohio Department of Commerce says the state's first harvested medical marijuana plants should be processed, tested and on dispensary shelves next month.
The department says delays in certifying testing labs that gauge potency and examine plant products for contamination has thwarted plans to make cannabis available this month. Large amounts should be available at dispensaries starting early next year. Nearly 320 doctors have registered to become recommending physicians for people who have one or more of Ohio's 21 qualifying medical conditions for legal cannabis use.
