Medical Marijuana In Ohio Is Passed By Lawmakers, Awaits Governors Signature

ohio mmj

Ohio Governor, John Kasich, is expected to sign the medical marijuana bill approved by lawmakers last week that will make Ohio the 25th state to legalize marijuana for medical use.

The bill was passed by a close vote last Wednesday by the Ohio State Senate and is now awaiting the governors signature. Once signed into law, the law will be effective in 90 days, making it legal sometime this September.

Gov. Kasich is expected to support the bill after stating earlier that he would support medical marijuana if approved by doctors. The bill is more limited than other states and supporters say it is very restrictive. Examples being, growing marijuana at home and smoking marijuana is still illegal.


The bill would allow patients with any of the 20 qualifying medical conditions including PTSD and severe pain to obtain medical marijuana at dispensaries with licensed pharmacists on site.  Rules for licensing cultivators and testing labs would be made by the Ohio Department of Commerce.

Excitement is building for supporters and advocates of the bill whom have been waiting for action since a similar bill failed to pass last year. Everyone can agree that legalizing medical marijuana in Ohio is a groundbreaking step for this midwest state.
