On June 4, the Ohio Board of Pharmacy issued 56 medical marijuana dispensary provisional licenses, after evaluating 376 applications. The Board could have awarded a total of 60 dispensary licenses, but two districts had no applicants and the only applicant in a third district was disqualified by the Board. The current provisional license holders have six months to meet all state-mandated requirements and obtain a certificate of operation.
Frantz Ward is pleased to announce that its client, Greenleaf Apothecaries, LLC, was awarded 5 separate licenses by the Board, the maximum number permitted under Ohio law. Greenleaf achieved the highest scores in each district in which it applied.
Applicants that were not awarded licenses have the right to appeal those decisions through an administrative process.
If you have questions about the awarding of provisional licenses, certificates of operation, or if you are interested in more information relating to medical marijuana, please do not hesitate to contact Frantz Ward’s Marijuana Law & Policy team.
