Ohio Senate proposes allowing dispensaries to sell recreational marijuana – The Daily Jeffersonian

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is giving a press conference on the state’s new recreational marijuana law set to go into effect at midnight.

The governor is scheduled to speak at 5 p.m.

Lawmakers in the Ohio Senate want to allow the state’s medical marijuana dispensaries to sell recreational marijuana to those 21 and older.

“We understand that we have to protect that access to products while also not allowing the black market to get a head start on the legal market,” said Sen. Rob McColley, R-Napoleon. “It is our intention to allow the legal market to go into effect as soon as possible.”
