State officials: Ohio’s medicinal marijuana program won’t be ready by deadline

Delays in inspections and licenses for growers mean Ohio won’t make a Sept. 8 deadline for implementation of the 2016 law legalizing medicinal marijuana, state officials say. Officials with the Ohio Department of Commerce today admitted that the state will not be ready to roll out its medicinal marijuana program by a previously-stated Sept. 8 deadline. After lawmakers passed a law legalizing medicinal marijuana in 2016, Ohio officials last November licensed 25 growers across the state to cultivate marijuana for medicinal use. None have begun planting crops yet because they haven’t received the necessary state certifications to do so. Only one – Pure Ohio Wellness LLC – has received a required state inspection. 

That leaves little time to begin the planting, processing and packaging needed so that medicinal weed will be available at dispensaries by the deadline. License holders for those dispensaries were named yesterday. The state says that three smaller growers are set for inspections this month and that five larger growers and one additional small grower will be inspected in July, clearing the way to issue certificates of operation that will allow growers to plant their crops. Department of Commerce officials blame the delay on weather and construction setbacks. The delay also comes after a variety of controversies, scoring errors and legal challenges around the way the state awarded medicinal marijuana licenses.

Marijuana is a term used to describe the dried flowers, leaves, stems, and seeds from the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica plant. Marijuana is the most commonly used illegal drug in the United States. Societal changes including greater acceptance of marijuana use have led to its legalization for medicinal or adult recreational use. More than half the states in the U.S. have some sort of medical marijuana law. 

The medical marijuana movement’s first big victory came in 1996, with the legalization for medicinal use by California voters. Polls show support for medical marijuana ranging from 60 to more than 80 percent. A 2009 roundup of clinical evidence for the efficacy of medical marijuana was published as a landmark article in the Journal of Opioid Management. Notably absent from medical marijuana patients in the published trials, in contrast to opiate drugs, are withdrawal symptoms and other signs of addiction. Given the scientific and medical evidence available, it seems that much of the corporate resistance to medical marijuana may spring from Big Pharma concerns over lost profits instead of from safety concerns. 

Archaeologists sifting through the contents of bronze urns from Scythian culture have found marijuana seeds. Marijuana is still illegal for recreational use in 42 U.S. states. Twenty-two states haven’t even gotten around to passing compassionate medical marijuana laws.

Cannabis Society & Culture Website

There are hundreds of marijuana related magazines that are currently being published. If you have any suggestions of magazines we might of over looked please feel free to leave us a comment at the bottom of the article. High Times magazine defaults to number one on the list because they are the oldest known marijuana magazine. The first time I ever saw what dank bud looks like was in a picture in High times Magazine. Cloud Magazine is Kind of like Hightimes meets MAXIM Magazine. 

All the girls in Cloud Magazine are Ganja Girls From HTGB. Cloud Magazine focuses on the entertainment side of marijuana and tries to stay away from the politics. Skunk Magazine is a pretty high quality magazine that focuses on entertainment and a celebrity’s in marijuana plus maybe a little bit of politics. Its a pretty hefty magazine that uses good quality paper. Kush magazine is probably the most high quality magazine on this list as it has the most pages and really high quality pictures as well as being book bound. 

Kush magazine is owned and operated by dailybuds.com and features articles about politics and celebrity’s in the marijuana movement. 420 Magazine is a pretty decent magazine featuring celebrity interviews and politics surrounding marijuana. The reasons why this magazine is worth mentioning is because it has main stream quality as far as the printing goes and i also respect that they got 7-ll to distribute them.

We’re Not Funny

All anyone can do now is pen a soft and somber tune about the horrors of caffeine addiction. They also have quite a few songs about cross-dressers and transvestites. They actually roll out a giant, smoke-spewing bong onstage for that song. It’s songs like this that make me think I could be a competent lyricist. The best drug song ever is a 112-way tie between every song released by Afroman.
