Ohio regulators claim two medical cannabis dispensaries violated rules

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.

    Ohio is stepping on its own feet and negating profits for Ohio to other state’s. It’s just dumb and Ohio is already dead last when it comes to the cannabis industry. Wake up, the profits don’t just affect the Cannabis industry they also affect other industries like travel, hotels, food, grocery stores, and your negating a lot of profit.

      the truth is that Ohio is using these tactics in hopes they can destroy the Medical Marijuana programs. they are also showing favoritism to most of the dispensaries up in Northern Ohio. I have been screaming this from the mountain tips since the program began. We need EVERYONE on board and raising hell to get it stopped. before they are able to destroy what we ALL worked and voted for 3 years ago!!

    To whom it may concern,
    Why has the state of Ohio been dragging their feet for 3 years after Medical Marijuana has been approved. Not one dispensary is open in the Cincinnati area, and I’m not including Lebanon, Ohio. I guess it’s like the old saying: Ohio is 20 years behind the rest of the country and everyone who has a Medical Marijuana card is not happy to say the least. This leaves us with only 1 alternative to use the black market where Marijuana is way cheaper than the dispensaries in Northern Ohio. Bottom line this is very unacceptable!!!!!!!!

    I was told that Harvest and Strawberry Fields had ownership issues and are being kept from opening. In the Dayton and Beavercreek,Ohio area. I was told this by a VERY reliable source in the Ohio Medical Marijuana Pharmacy Program
