Medical Marijuana Closer To Reality In Northwest Ohio

2/4/19 – 5:30 A.M.

Medical marijuana is legal in Ohio now, and Hancock County has two doctors who hold “certificates to recommend” the drug. Hancock County residents will have to drive to Bowling Green to buy medical marijuana. A dispensary expects to open in Wood County by this spring.

To get medical marijuana, you have to visit a certified physician, who will confirm that you have one of the medical conditions that qualify for medical marijuana. The doctor must complete a profile in the state’s Patient and Caregiver Registry, and you have to complete a registration there as well.
