Ohio regulators are cracking down on two medical marijuana dispensaries, alleging the retailers violated state rules involving ownership issues.
Greenleaf Apothecaries, which does business as The Botanist, and Harvest of Ohio, won’t be able to open any new dispensaries until their cases are resolved, according to The (Cincinnati) Enquirer.
Greenleaf is an affiliate of New York-based multistate operator Acreage Holdings.
Greenleaf’s attorney told the newspaper the allegations are meritless. Harvest’s majority owner also disputed the state’s claims, but the company said it is working with state regulators on the issue.
More details about the case are available in this report.
