About Medical Marijuana in Ohio

Ohio legalized medical cannabis in June 2016 when HB 523 was signed by Governor Kasich. Dispensaries opened in 2019 and sales officially began in-state in January 2019.

The passage of medical marijuana laws follows a decades-long legalization battle. In 1975, Ohio decriminalized possession of up to 100 grams of cannabis. In 2015, voters failed to pass a measure which would have legalized adult use cannabis laws.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Ohio lawmakers approved precautionary measures for consumers and dispensary staff. Allowances include placing phone orders and curbside pick-up at dispensaries. Telemedicine continues to be legal to allow physicians to certify patients in Ohio for medical marijuana over the phone or over video. 

How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Ohio

You’ll need to get a written certification from your doctor, and then complete a process on the state’s website. 

If approved, you’ll receive an email prompting you to register with the state’s patient registry. You’ll have 90 days from receiving the email to complete the registration process. 

A $50 patient payment is due upon registration, with caregivers paying $25. The same cost applies to renewals. 

Each certification is good for 12 months.
