Marijuana products for Ohioans with a medical need were supposed to be on dispensary shelves in less than a month. Though that deadline won’t be met, state officials say the new program remains on track, just moving slower than outlined in the law Gov. John Kasich signed in June 2016.
The program authorizes use by patients with 21 conditions, including cancer or chronic pain, in the form of edibles, oils, patches and vaporizing. Patients and their caregivers will be allowed to possess up to a 90-day supply. Smoking or home growing it is barred.
