Who can buy medical marijuana?

Even when something is used for medicinal purposes, the proper steps need to be taken when using and selling this medicine. While medical marijuana has become legalized in Ohio for qualified conditions, it is important for those in the cannabis related industry to know whom they can sell their product to. If a licensed seller ends up selling medical marijuana to someone who does not have a medical marijuana card, he or she might end up jeopardizing his or her business. It is therefore important to know the correct way to obtain a card.

The first step to obtaining a medical marijuana card is to visit a certified physician. The physician can confirm that the patient has a qualifying condition and can also create a profile for the patient on the relevant registry. It is very important to create and maintain this relationship, as an in-person visit is required at least once a year. Additionally, the physician can make their recommendations directly on the patient registry and can also recommend refills for up to 360 days.

The next step is to get registered. Once a qualified physician has entered the patient into the registry, he or she must then complete their application and pay the fee. The fee varies depending on whether the person is a caregiver or a patient.

Only when these steps are completed and the person has an active registry card, associated government-issued ID and an active recommendation can the patient purchase medical marijuana from a licensed dispensary. At the dispensary, the staff can counsel people on the correct dosage for their condition and on the type appropriate for them to alleviate their pain so they can continue to enjoy their life.
