Even when businesses deal with obstacles, the numbers can still be promising. Despite the sale of medical marijuana beginning in Ohio in mid January of this year, the industry has garnered around $1.85 million in two months. This is despite the limitations discussed in a recent post with regards to high prices.
While Ohio's medical marijuana industry got off to a slow start, you may be seeing your dispensary growing as more certified physicians recommend cannabis for their patients with qualifying conditions. As your production and trade increases, you are likely considering hiring new employees to your staff.
There are positives and negatives surrounding marijuana. The legalization of medical marijuana in Ohio was hailed as a great step, potentially providing much needed relief to people suffering from debilitating pain from a number of medical conditions, as discussed in last week's post. Unfortunately, few people associate cannabis products with pain relief, which is why it might come as a surprise to many that most patients who are purchasing the product are disabled.
