It’s hard to imagine a worse way of botching medical marijuana legalization than what we have in Ohio.
1) There are 21 specific conditions eligible for treatment with medical marijuana. Why not more or fewer?
2) Why can the “State Board of Pharmacy award up to 60 dispensary licenses,” and not 50 or 70?
3) “The dispensary application fee is $5,000 and the biennial certificate of operation fee is $70,000.” Why these particular — and obviously ridiculous — prices?
4) “The law prohibits the use of medical marijuana by smoking or combustion, but does allows for vaporization (vaping).” For goodness’ sake, why the distinction?
So much for “majesty of the law.” This is a farce.
