Medical Marijuana Under Administrative Law

In 2016, Ohio legalized medical marijuana and the law became effective in September. The legislature still has until 2017 to write the specific laws. While it still may be a while before patients can obtain the cannabis products and paraphernalia they need, many grow operations are getting started.

Unfortunately, there is still much confusion and many gaps in knowledge when it comes to law enforcement and how medical marijuana is handled. Individuals who are looking to start growing medical marijuana or producing cannabis oils and other products, or have already started, need to be highly informed as to how their industry is regulated.

Contrary to popular belief, these operations are being handled by an administrative law agency, not the criminal justice system. In light of this, it is important to know that you should not be hiring a criminal defense attorney when issues arise.

You need a lawyer who is fluent in the language of Ohio administrative law, like me, attorney David V. Patton. At my Solon office, The Patton Law Firm, LLC, I provide clients with comprehensive representation in administrative medical marijuana issues. I am one of the preeminent marijuana experts in the state, and able to talk to anyone about marijuana from a business perspective.

Personal Experience And Insight

The legalization of medical marijuana in Ohio has been beneficial for my family. I am the father of a son who was diagnosed with epilepsy. It has been shown that cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil is effective in treating children with epilepsy, lessening the frequency and severity of seizures. With this advance, it is of the utmost importance to me that marijuana products continue to be available for medicinal purposes and grow operations are allowed to flourish under administrative law guidelines and restrictions.
