Ohio Picks 12 Large Growers for Medical Marijuana Program< < Back to
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Muskingum County is among the diverse locations of 12 large growers Ohio has picked for its medical marijuana program.
The Ohio Department of Commerce announced the large cultivators and a final small grower Thursday. That rounds out the list of 24 companies authorized to produce medicinal marijuana under a new system expected to go live by September.
Large growers paid $20,000 to apply to operate sites up to 25,000 square feet. They’ll pay $180,000 in initial licensing fees and $200,000 a year thereafter.
The 12 chosen growers applied for sites in Brown Summit, Cuyahoga, Lake, Muskingum, Erie, Mahoning, Clark, Stark, Sandusky, Greene and Lawrence counties.
