Medical Marijuana Rules Receive Legislative Approval

Ohio’s medical marijuana program is moving forward, with implementation expected to take effect in the fall of 2018.

The bulk of the administrative rules—which were created by the State Medical Board, Pharmacy Board and Department of Commerce—cleared the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review more than a month ahead of the deadline imposed by state law. They cover dispensaries, processors, testing facilities, patients, caregivers, physicians and the form and method of administration. Rules for cultivators, promulgated by the Department of Commerce, have already been approved.

The medical marijuana program rules are required to be in place by Sept. 8, and the whole system is expected to be operational one year from that date.
