Heavy regulations govern your dispensary

If you are one of the fortunate few authorized to distribute medical marijuana in Ohio, you understand the complex process of obtaining a license. The young and developing industry falls under heavy state regulation. A limited number of licenses are available, few applicants receive approval and all of licenses are expensive to obtain. In fact, Ohio is one of the toughest states in which to open a dispensary.

Ensure marijuana license complies with state law

Last week's blog discussed the ways in which the quality of medical marijuana in Ohio is tested and maintained. Manufacturers and growers have various legal obligations to fulfill to ensure their product meets the state's stringent requirements. Unfortunately, the majority of product being tested in the three state laboratories is rejected due to contaminants, but an explanation is provided so manufacturers can improve their product.

Is medical marijuana tested to ensure quality?

Before a medicine is cleared for consumption by the public, it is tested to ensure it actually contains the ingredients it claims it does and at the levels it says it does. The law is no different for medical marijuana, with three cannabis-testing labs currently in operation in Ohio. Two others have also been licensed; however, they have not yet begun operating, as they fear handling a substance that is federally illegal might jeopardize federal grants and licenses.
