Ohio Gov. Pressing Lawmakers to Allow Adult-Use Cannabis Sales

The Ohio Division of Cannabis Control Board has already proposed letting current cannabis dispensaries apply for dual-use licenses that could serve both the medical and adult-use retail markets. Nilendu Singh, General Manager at Nar Reserve Dispensary in downtown Columbus, said in the report that he’s eager for the opportunity to serve adult-use customers.
