    The backward state of Ohio’s medical marijuana law is a complete farce. Cost will be sky high, it will be out of reach for most in need of medical marijuana. Unless authorized patients can grow their own medicine again it will be out of reach for most authorized patients. In the Toledo blade published within last couple of days “article, end to free testing of pot start questions” A police chief in North west Ohio, chief Bingham stated, I don’t think anyone is looking at the big picture, You are 50 times more likely to progress to heroin or cocaine if you start marijuana. How backward thinking is that?

  2. Are physicians going to be able to prescribe cannabis now in Ohio? If so, when is this taking place? Will insurance companies cover?

    My primary care doc said that he would prescribe for me as soon as it is legally for him to do so. I have an incurable neurological condition and use various forms of cannabis with beneficial results. The only downside is the cost. Buying illegally is very expensive.
