New Weed Debate Arises

Eligibility for medical marijuana in Ohio would be expanded to include any condition determined by a licensed physician to need treatment…this, under a new bill that would further expand the state’s medicinal marijuana program. The measure would also place regulation of the program solely under the Department of Commerce, removing the current, additional oversight by the state pharmacy board. Senate Health Chairman, Steve Huffman, a Tipp City Republican and doctor, brings up the legislation. The bill expands qualifying conditions to include autism spectrum disorder, arthritis, migraines and more. Ohio legalized medical marijuana in 2016 and implemented it in 2019. Earlier this year, the pharmacy board voted to make 73 more dispensary licenses available beyond the current number of 52. No word on when the bill goes into debate.
