While Ohio became the 6th U.S state to decriminalise cannabis in 1975, the state has still yet to adopt a fully legalised cannabis market for both medical and recreational users despite the legalisation of medical marijuana in 2016.
So, what is the current status regarding cannabis in the state of Ohio?
In this article, we take a closer look at the existing marijuana laws in the 7th most populated U.S state.
Ohio Cannabis Law
At present, cannabis remains illegal for recreational use in Ohio; however, the state has taken a largely relaxed approach to cannabis crimes, eliminating heavy penalties for possession and consumption of small quantities of marijuana. Indeed, since 1975, the possession of up to 100 grams of cannabis in Ohio has been decriminalised, transforming the state’s approach to the punishment of cannabis-related crimes,
While a recreational market remains sadly absent with the most recent initiative to formally legalise recreational cannabis failing in 2014, the medical use of cannabis was first legalised in 2016 with the first sales occurring in 2019.
Under the law, anyone aged 21 and older can legally shop at medical cannabis dispensaries in the state. Proof of age and a medical marijuana card are required to purchase any marijuana product.
Unfortunately, the consumption of cannabis by smoking is restricted under the law, which permits cannabis use only in edible, oil, vapour, patch, tincture, or plant matter form.
Can I grow Marijuana seeds in Ohio?
Growing cannabis or marijuana plants is limited only to those with a commercial growing license. Cultivation of less than 100 grams would also be considered a misdemeanour offence with a small fine and no criminal conviction.
