Ohio regulators announced that 104 applicants have applied for 40 available medical marijuana processor licenses.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Ohio’s medical marijuana program allows for companies to be vertically integrated and possess retail, cultivation and processing licenses.
- Processors will be allowed to produce cannabis oil, tinctures, edibles, patches and flower for vaping. Ohio law prohibits smoking cannabis flower.
- The deadline for the program to be fully functional is Sept. 8, 2018.
- Ohio’s MMJ application process recently came under scrutiny after it was revealed one of the application judges had a felony drug conviction and another had ties to the license winner.
