Doctors Submitting Registrations For Medical Marijuana Patients

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy says doctors have submitted nearly 2,000 recommendations in the medical marijuana patient and caregiver registry.

The total number of recommendations reached 1,948, with about 1,062 people completing the information online and activating registration e-cards.  The registry is the online portal where doctors certified to recommend medical marijuana can register patients and caregivers. It went live December 3.  After the state confirms who they are, recommended patients and caregivers can get registration e-cards. The cards allow them to get medical marijuana from dispensaries once they open.  Medical marijuana is expected to be available by the end of the year or early next year.
