Ohio: Recreational marijuana could be on sale in June

Recreational marijuana in Ohio has been a hot topic for years, and it looks like it could finally go on sale a little sooner than expected.

According to FOX 8, the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review decided Monday that medical dispensaries that are already operating can obtain a dual-use license that would allow them to start selling recreational marijuana as early as mid-June.

The Ohio Division of Cannabis Control may begin accepting license applications in late May, which could lead to recreational sales beginning within the next month.

Of course, none of this guarantees anything, but there is cautious optimism brewing that legal marijuana purchases in Ohio could begin before summer officially starts.

Under Issue 2, it is now legal in Ohio for people 21 and older to possess up to 2 1/2 ounces of cannabis flower and up to 15 grams of extract. It also allows Ohioans to grow up to six cannabis plants per household, or up to 12 plants if there are two or more adults in the home.

By law, Ohio’s recreational marijuana program must be fully implemented by September 7, AP reported.
