Proposed limitations on how much medical marijuana Ohio patients could possess and purchase would be one of the most stringent in the country.
Patients could possess and purchase up to 6 oz of marijuana products or plant material comprising the equivalent amount of THC in a span of 90 days. That sets Ohio on level with New Jersey and Washington D.C. as the most restrictive states among 13 regulators compared Ohio with.
Ohio’s medical marijuana law permits patients with 20 medical conditions to purchase and use marijuana if recommended by a physician. Smoking the plant isn’t permitted, but dispensaries can sell plant material and oils for vaping, tinctures, patches and marijuana-infused oils and foods.
The law restricts patients to purchasing and possessing at most a “90-day supply,” but does not define how much that is. On Thursday, the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy released draft rules detailing the allowable amounts.
