State licenses marijuana dispensary in Goshen near New Philadelphia – Times Reporter

GOSHEN TOWNSHIP — A Michigan man who formerly lived in New Philadelphia plans to open Tuscarawas County’s first medical marijuana dispensary just outside the city limits at 1145 W. High Ave. in Goshen Township.

Luke J. Marino of Belleville, Mich. owns 87% of Ratio Cannabis LLC, which received a provisional license Monday from the Ohio Board of Pharmacy.

“They have up to 270 days to construct and create a dispensary space that follows all state laws and program rules and regulations,” pharmacy board spokeswoman Kylynne Johnson wrote in an email. “Once they are inspected and receive approval from the Board, they are then allowed to operate.”
