The Ohio Board of Pharmacy will start the process of issuing up to 73 new medical marijuana dispensary licenses when the official Request for Applications (RFA II) is published on Sept. 20, 2021. How they are selected will differ from the original process. The move attempts to address concerns over access to dispensaries and medical marijuana products for patients. The Board of Pharmacy split Ohio into 31 dispensary districts, allowing it to chart where the state’s 56 existing dispensaries that have permission to operate already exist. There are two remaining dispensaries that have not yet received permission to open to patients. The new process would cap the state’s dispensaries at 130.
