Ohio regulators are temporarily changing the state’s medical marijuana rules to give MMJ patients easier access to products during the coronavirus pandemic – a move that could increase sales at dispensaries.


According to Cleveland TV station WEWS, the temporary rules include:
  • Dispensaries may take phone orders.
  • Curbside pickup.
  • Patients are permitted to purchase MMJ in two 45-day windows instead of having to wait 90 days, as they did previously.

Transactions between patients and dispensary employees must take place on a dispensary’s property.

Ohio joins a growing number of states with legal marijuana sales that are allowing curbside pickup and online ordering during the COVID-19 crisis.
