Medical marijuana can be sold in Elyria, Lorain

Medical marijuana can be sold in Elyria, Lorain

"Buckeye Botanicals LLC", in Jackson County, Ohio was awarded a dispensary license, according to the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program.

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy awarded medical-marijuana dispensary licenses to companies based in Youngstown, Warren and East Liverpool.

It is among three businesses to receive a dispensary license in a region that includes Columbiana, Stark, Carroll and Tuscarawas counties.

OH has licensed 56 locations that can sell medical marijuana once it becomes legal this fall, including five in Franklin County. Cresco Labs Ohio LLC on Main Street in Wintersville in Jefferson County was approved for license.

The Board of Pharmacy has been getting background checks and verifying that proposed locations are at least 500 feet from schools and churches. A total of 376 applications were received. Regulators of the program say not all of the state's growers, manufacturers and dispensaries will be operational by the legislated deadline.

Qualcomm launches Snapdragon 850 platform, boosts "Always Connected" Windows 10 PCs
The new platform shares the same X20 LTE modem as the Snapdragon 845 , so it can offer Gigabit LTE connectivity on the go. The chipset features ARM processors, integrated LTE, long battery life, and an instant-on resume with no hibernation.

Ohio's 2016 medical marijuana law says the program must begin September 8.

Marijuana plants a few weeks away from harvest in a medical marijuana cultivation center in Albion, Illinois. "If it's legal and it's regulated, we'll make sure it conforms to the pharmacy board and local regulations in Toledo".

On the other hand, Sean Nestor, co-chairman of the Lucas County Green Party, who was involved in organizing the 2015 ballot initiative that abolished penalties in Toledo's misdemeanor law for the possession and cultivation of marijuana, said he feels OH has moved too slowly in legalizing medical marijuana dispensaries.

State law does not allow marijuana to be sold to be smoked.

"I think it's definitely a good move to have medical marijuana in OH, although I do feel it needs to be opened up in some form", Mr. Nestor said. But board liaison Ali Simon says that doesn't mean those areas won't have dispensaries someday.
