The path to opening a business in the cannabis industry is mired with roadblocks, even though it is now legally possible in Ohio. Not only is there a social stigma associated with anything that has to do with cannabis, there are a number of complicated regulations that businesses must adhere to in order to operate. Even then, medical marijuana dispensaries are not opening up with the speed that they should be.
With recreational use of marijuana becoming legal in more and more states across the country as well as medical marijuana, one would think that its usage would become more acceptable in society, but this is not the case. Though medical usages of the substance are known to treat a number of medical conditions, people still hesitate to use or disclose their usage of it, for fear of being labeled 'potheads'. What many don't understand is that medical usage of the substance offers much needed relief to those who have exhausted all of their options for respite from pain.
As many Ohio residents anxiously await the availability of medical marijuana, others, including law enforcement, have concerns about how the legal trade of marijuana will affect the rate of crime in the state. As a holder of a dispensary license, you already know the mountain of regulations you must follow, including those related to keeping your product and customers safe.
