Ohio Officials Unable To Meet September Deadline For Medical Marijuana Program

The state admitted this week it still has a ways to go

State officials say there’s no way to meet a September deadline to start Ohio’s medical marijuana program. A building on Tonawanda Trail in Beavercreek will be the new home of Harvest of Ohio, a medical marijuana dispensary.  But the state admitted this week it still has a ways to go with getting this program off the ground.  “It’s drugs so people are going to be iffy about it,” said Ariana Goins.

Ever since this issue has been on the table, it has been divisive, with people in Beavercreek also on both sides of the issue.  “I think it’s a good thing if it’s for medical use,” said Randall Green. Still, others had no idea a dispensary was on the way, close to busy shopping centers like The Greene.

The city of Beavercreek earlier this year passed a six-month moratorium against medical marijuana businesses. It’s set to expire later this month. The reason the state said it won’t meet the September deadline is because it is still working on selecting and certifying hundreds of groups to grow or sell medical cannabis.
