On January 16, 2018, four Ohio dispensaries began selling medical marijuana to patients and caregivers. The following are the first day sales figures.
The first customer at Sandusky’s medical marijuana dispensary was a patient battling with multiple sclerosis.
Ynez Henningsen was at The Forest Sandusky when it opened Wednesday morning.
“This is a very exciting day for the thousands of Ohioans who will benefit from having access to medical marijuana,” Henningsen said. “It is an honor to be part of such a vital program.”
Henningsen, a U.S. Air Force veteran, works as the special projects manager for Standard Wellness Company, which is the parent company of The Forest.
The state of Ohio’s first marijuana dispensaries opened at 9 a.m. Wednesday. More than 3,500 patients have registered to purchase medical cannabis.
