As part of its mission to impact health-related public policy, The Free Clinic is holding a community forum on Medical Marijuana—an issue that could have broad impact on our region’s workforce, healthcare delivery options, safety considerations, research and commercial prospects, taxing options, among other issues. We plan to review lessons learned from other jurisdictions that have implemented some form of medical marijuana and to help Ohio prepare for such an eventuality, should well-publicized efforts to pass a voter initiative on the subject prove successful. The Free Clinic has not taken a formal position on this issue, and the forum is not intended to advocate for or against passage of any proposed initiative. Rather, it is designed to provide a rational, fact-based dialogue regarding the relevant issues that such a dramatic legal and policy shift in Ohio would entail.
