Ohio Recreational Adult Use Updates

As the cannabis landscape evolves across the United States, Ohio takes a significant step forward with the recent update to the Ohio Revised Code (ORC). Building on our previous discussion of Ohio’s, including the passage of Issue 2, we now present the latest updates shaping the state’s evolving policies. On November 13, 2023, the revised code introduced Chapter 3780, specifically addressing the regulation of adult-use cannabis within the state.

Please Note: As of now, the passing of Issue 2 doesn't grant immediate access to dispensaries for recreational purchases. The law is scheduled to take effect 30 days after the election, around Dec. 7. However, the Division of Marijuana Control is actively working on determining the integration of the adult-use program with the existing medical marijuana program. This means it may take some time before citizens can make purchases at dispensaries under the new law. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting development.

The Countdown to Access:

As an initiated statute, Issue 2 becomes law 30 days post-election, effective December 7. But, the green light for dispensary purchases is not immediate. The Division of Marijuana Control is set to decide how the adult-use program aligns with the existing medical marijuana program in the months ahead.

What to Expect:

Citizens, aged 21 and above, gain the right to possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis or 15 grams of extract. Yet, buying from dispensaries awaits the issuance of adult-use cannabis licenses, a process that may extend up to a year.

Safety First:

For those venturing into cannabis use, important safety considerations emerge. While home growing is permitted, selling what you grow isn't allowed. Testing positive for THC may still have consequences at work, and cannabis and guns remain separate entities.

Added Protections for Cardholders:

Medical marijuana cardholders retain benefits like tax exemptions and potentially higher possession limits. Considering the expected influx at dispensaries, having or renewing a medical marijuana card offers a privileged access pathway.
