Sens. Steve Hoffman, R-Tipp City, and Kirk Schuring, R-Canton, introduced legislation this week that would revamp the program after a similar bill stalled in The previous general assembly. Senate Bill 9 It would allow doctors to recommend cannabis for any debilitating condition, increase the number of dispensaries and allow growers to expand their facilities.
Under the proposal, responsibility for overseeing the program rests with the Ministry of Commerce. It is currently managed by three different government agencies, which many in the cannabis industry say is very stressful.
The bill also:
Creates an intra-commerce committee to organize the program, which includes physicians, employers, law enforcement, addiction specialists, and patient representatives. The 13 members will be appointed by the governor and the leaders of the House and Senate.
Patients with out-of-state medical marijuana cards are allowed to obtain cannabis in Ohio, provided they register with the state’s database.
Dispensaries are allowed to advertise on social media without prior approval.
Confirms that dispensaries can provide a Drive-thru Or curbside pickup, which some actually do.
Dispensaries should not be located within a mile of each other.
