Ohio clears 2 more marijuana hurdles

COLUMBUS

The Department of Commerce says it’s made additional progress in ramping up Ohio’s medical marijuana program.

The state issued provisional licenses Friday to two more processors and two more testing labs.

This brings to nine the number of processors that have met state minimum standards to process plants into marijuana-infused products for use by people with physician recommendations.

The two new processors are Green Investment Partners, of Columbus, and Standard Wellness Company, of Gibsonburg in Sandusky County.

Ohio legalized medical marijuana in 2016 but won’t meet a Sept. 8 target for making it available to patients.
