13 New Dispensaries Opening in Ohio in the Coming Weeks!

Updated: Nov 20, 2019


43 out of the total 56 dispensaries in Ohio have been approved for operations!

The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program was passed in 2016 with the goal of becoming fully operational by the end of 2018. It was not until January of 2019 that the first dispensary opened, with 30 others being approved by the time October began.


Recently, there has been a string of dispensary announcements as the Ohio Department of Commerce conducts final inspections on the remaining 26 dispensaries that have not yet opened for the first time. A total of 13 dispensaries have been approved in the last couple of weeks, with grand openings just around the corner!


Let's take a look at the newest dispensaries that have been approved in this latest string of announcements by the Ohio Board of Pharmacy:
