Medical Marijuana Delivery may be coming to Ohio
Ohio – Governor DeWine is considering allowing medical marijuana delivery to take place to help combat the spread of the Coronavirus. Curbside pickup at local dispensaries has recently been approved while the statewide stay-at-home order is in effect.
Medical marijuana has been deemed essential and the 51 OH dispensaries that service the medical needs of 88,300+ Ohio medcard patients will stay open during the pandemic.
“I certainly wouldn’t rule that out,” Governor DeWine stated about getting medical marijuana via delivery to qualified patients. “That’s something I will ask our team to look at and to look at what the situation is for these individuals.”
The State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy has implemented a guideline allowing patients and caregivers to call a dispensary prior to arrival and place medical cannabis orders.
Th state is now allowing telemedicine for qualified patients to get a medical marijuana card as well as to renew existing cards. Using this process, potential patients meet with a certifying doctor online using a smart phone, tablet or computer.
