The state laws require patients to have a designated caregiver who is authorized to purchase marijuana on behalf of the patient and to transport and prepare marijuana for the patient’s use. The authority of the caregivers is given to them by the physicians. They can link the caregiver to the patient in the state’s database. Please note that only your physician can authorize the caregiver. Once the doctor completes the data-entering process, an email is sent to the caregiver to complete the registration process.

Caregiver Laws

There are certain conditions that a caregiver must meet in the state of Ohio. They must be at least 21 years old. They must be an Ohio resident. They must have the nod of approval from the State Board of Pharmacy as the patient’s caregiver. The state must approve the caregiver’s application once the registration part is completed. Caregiver’s credentials are run through seven databases; the process takes approximately seven days. Caregivers don’t have permission to use a patient’s cannabis, they can’t purchase cannabis above the upper limit permitted for one patient, and they can’t be the patient’s physician.

Everything You Need to Know About Medical Marijuana in Ohio

The most critical piece of legislation regarding medical marijuana in Ohio is the Medical Marijuana Legislation HB 523. Signed by John Kasich, this bill legalizes the use of medical cannabis in the state of Ohio. A rulemaking process was established in this bill. The process envisioned a state-run or licensed system of testing labs, growing facilities, physician certification, patient registration, retained dispensaries, and processors. It is pertinent to mention here that the cultivation of cannabis and using cannabis by smoking is prohibited in Ohio. Interestingly, this clause permits the use of cannabis in the form of edible oil, vapour, patch, tinctures, and plant matter.

General Overview

Ever since the medical marijuana legislation mentioned in the previous section was passed in 2016, life has become a lot easier for the patients seeking relief from chronic pain and the several health conditions. It is pertinent to mention here that recreational marijuana use is currently illegal in Ohio. However, the legal landscape is changing with passing day.

Qualifying Conditions

Some examples of the medical conditions that qualify a patient for medical marijuana in the state of Ohio include:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Pain
  • Epilepsy
  • Sickle Cell Anemia
  • Spinal Cord Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Possession Limits

If you are caught in possession of fewer than 100 grams of cannabis in Ohio, the penalty falls in the misdemeanor category. The maximum fine that can be imposed is $150. However, the severity of the penalties will increase as the amount of cannabis is increased. Two hundred grams can lead to 30 days of jail time, and 1000 grams is considered a felony with an incarceration period of one year and a fine of $2,500. But because the state has enacted the medical marijuana laws discussed earlier in this brief, you don’t have to worry about the penalties as long as you possess marijuana worth only 90 days of supply.

What Can I Get With My Medical Card?
