The State of Ohio and Cannabis
Here's what you need to know
State lawmakers passed House Bill 523 in the summer of 2016. The passage of this law made medical marijuana legal everywhere across the great State of Ohio, and it established the rules governing the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (OMMCP).
The Ohio Medical Board has approved the use of medical marijuana to help treat and alleviate the symptoms associated with 21 medical conditions.
Each year there is a petition period to request the addition of a medical condition to Ohio's qualifying condition list.
After confirming your qualifying condition, you'll receive a signed recommendation following your appointment and an email where you will then have to submit the $50 registration fee to the Board of Pharmacy. After you submit the fee, you will be able to download your official Ohio medical marijuana card.
With your Ohio medical marijuana card in hand, you'll be able to access all 57 marijuana dispensaries located throughout the state and purchase medical marijuana and medical marijuana products.
Your Ohio Marijuana Card makes it easy for you to demonstrate to law enforcement that you are registered with Ohio's Medical Marijuana Control Program, and thereby allowed to possess, transport, and consume medical marijuana products.
