State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy Draft Dispensary Districts

To assist in making this determination, the Board developed draft dispensary districts.

The draft dispensary districts were created after considering the following:

  • Consultation with regulators in other states Ohio’s population
  • Existing compliance resources for the State Board of Pharmacy
  • Access to major Ohio roadways The following pages include five maps
