Ohio medical marijuana regulators have loosened several proposed restrictions on dispensaries that will sell the drug to patients. The moves come after the Ohio Board of Pharmacy received public comments on its first draft of rules for dispensaries.
Current rule proposals call for medical marijuana patients in Ohio to get up to six ounces of marijuana every three months – a smaller amount than most other states that allow sick people to buy the drug to treat ailments.
The board must issue final rules by September and issue licenses a year later.
Ohio lawmakers legalized medical marijuana last June, leaving most of the rule making up to state agencies.
