Medical marijuana sales begin in Ohio on Jan 16, but marijuana products and inventory will be limited.
Initially, dispensaries in Ohio will only sell flower products for vaporizing and prices will likely be high, Cincinnati reports. Only a few dispensaries will be opening since many of the state’s dispensaries are experiencing delays in opening.
“Patients in Ohio are finally going to begin accessing medical marijuana safely and legally in licensed dispensaries,” said Chis Lindsey of the MPP. “While this is historic, it is also bittersweet, as implementation of the law continues to be delayed in most parts of the state. Countless Ohioans could benefit from medical cannabis, but only a limited number will gain access to it this week.”
Effective medical marijuana laws have been adopted in 32 states, D.C. and the U.S. territories of Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Northern Mariana Islands. Idaho is the only state without any form of medical marijuana law.
