Jan. 16th was a legendary day for Ohio as they allowed four dispensaries to begin selling medical marijuana to patients and caregivers

Patients looking for MMJ must receive a physician’s recommendation for one of the following medical conditions:

AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy or another seizure disorder, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, hepatitis C, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, pain that is either chronic and severe or intractable, Parkinson’s disease, positive status for HIV, post-traumatic stress disorder, sickle cell anemia, spinal cord disease or injury, Tourette’s syndrome, traumatic brain injury, and ulcerative colitis.

It is speculated that more conditions might be added on as things progress. State officials will be holding hearings to contemplate on whether six more conditions should be added to the list.

Ohio released the figures from the first day of sales, which totaled $75,000 or 8.7 pounds of medical cannabis.

The landscape for cannabis in Ohio is still in its infancy. As of now, only flower is being sold. Products such as edibles, lotions, tinctures, and other forms of MMJ won’t be available until processing facilities are operating.

This is great progress for the state of Ohio and the nation as whole.

What’re your thoughts on Ohio legalizing MMJ?
