Ohio now has operating licensees in all of the categories required for sales of medical marijuana to patients to begin, and state officials reported doctors have submitted nearly 4,500 recommendations in the MMJ patient and caregiver registry.

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy said the number of recommendations totals 4,440 as of Dec. 24, with at least 3,036 people completing the information online and activating registration e-cards.

After the state confirms who they are, recommended patients and caregivers can obtain registration e-cards.

The cards allow them to get medical cannabis from dispensaries once they are operational.
