CBD Legal States Policy

Medical Cannabis Policy State by State: Ohio

What is the legal status of Cannabis in Ohio?

On September 8, 2016, Ohio adopted house bill 523, legalizing medical marijuana.  The laws in Ohio are still being developed, but as of now patients with any of the below delineated conditions may possess up to a 90-day supply of oil, tincture, plant material, edibles or patches.  Smoking of any Cannabis-based substance is forbidden. The regulations must be finalized by September of 2017, and the program must be fully functional by September of 2018.  We will update this as needed.
