Some medical marijuana could hit the market in Ohio next month

The first batches of legal medical marijuana may be available in Ohio as early as mid-November but the initial supply is expected to sell out almost immediately, according to state officials (Source: “Legal medical marijuana may be available in Ohio next month,” Springfield News-Sun, Oct. 4, 2018)

Mark Hamlin of the Ohio Department of Commerce said this week that two small-scale cultivators — one in Meigs County and another in Portage County — will have product ready for state inspection in early November.

Hamlin told the Medical Marijuana Advisory Committee that the first batches will serve hundreds, not thousands, of patients. Likely, Ohio will see what played out in the early days in other states: a handful of dispensaries open, sell out in a matter of days, close again until more product is available, Hamlin said.
