For today's weed news we go to the great state of Ohio.
After more than 2 years of waiting, Ohio's first medical marijuana dispensaries finally opened their doors for business on Wednesday!
As of this week, registered patients can shop at the CY+ dispensary in Wintersville, the Forest Sandusky dispensary, in Sandusky Ohio, the Ohio Valley Natural Relief dispensary in Wintersville as well as the Botanist dispensary in Canton.
Combined, the four dispensaries sold around $75,000 worth of cannabis flower on their first day of business. That breaks down to about 8.7 pounds of weed with a cost of about $538 per ounce of bud.
The state has announced that they plan to eventually allow nearly 60 MMJ dispensaries throughout the state in total, including up to 7 in the Cincinnati area.
As of right now, there are over 3,500 registered MMJ patients in Ohio, and according to experts, that number could one day reach as many as 200,000 patients.
Oh yeah, and did I mention that smoking cannabis is still prohibited in the state, even for medical patients? That's right, patients are only allowed to eat edibles, use salves and tinctures and vape flower. But they better not like that shit on fire they can go to jail!
And even though it's obvious that their medical marijuana laws might need a little adjusting, I still feel like it's awesome to see Ohio become part of the medical marijuana states "club" for real. (I don't feel like it counts until patients can actually buy weed in your state.)
But damn, let them smoke that shit already... That's what weed is for!
Anyway, that's what's up in Ohio.
